The Health Law and Regulation Unit (HLARU) supports research and knowledge exchange activities in the field of health law and regulation. HLARU brings together a range of experts pursuing cutting-edge, impactful research into current legal, regulatory and policy dilemmas in healthcare. Our members’ expertise encompasses a wide range of health law topics, including medical malpractice, patient capacity and consent, reproduction, professional regulation, children and medicine, research ethics, and mental health. We are committed to conducting world-leading legal and policy research which will make a significant original contribution to health law scholarship and enhance the quality of public debate in a particularly controversial field.

Set up in 2013, HLARU seeks to build on the School of Law and Social Justice’s proud history of medico-legal research and add to the University of Liverpool’s unparalleled record in producing high quality public health outputs. We are keen to build capacity by engaging with academic partners and external entities. If you are interested in our activities or have ideas for future collaborations, please contact HLARU’s Director, Dr Amel Alghrani.
