Advanced Legal Epidemiology Methods

A Public Health Law Academy training

Good Governance

This third and final training in the Legal Epidemiology series combines the concepts from the first training, Introduction to Legal Epidemiology, and the second course, Introduction to Legal Mapping. Building on concepts from public health law research, this training spells out how to use scientific methods to determine whether a law affects population health.  

This course will introduce concepts that are more advanced than those covered in other Public Health Law Academy trainings. It is intended for people with a background or graduate degree in public health, psychology, economics, or a related field; researchers and practitioners with experience in quantitative or qualitative analysis; and others who have a background or work experience in statistical or evaluation methods. Preview introductory legal epidemiology training content by watching this video short.

After this training, you will be able to

  • define the steps in planning an advanced legal epidemiology study;
  • develop logic models and understand socio-legal theories;
  • explain the advantages and limitations of various research designs; and
  • apply advanced legal epidemiology methods to study the impact of law on health outcomes.
