In its inaugural series, the USC Law & Global Health Collaboration—Global(HEALTH+LAW)—delved into transgender rights, law and global health, and more, in the 2016-2017 year.
The USC Law & Global Health Collaboration advances scholarship and provides monthly lectures and public discussions at the intersection of law and global health. Virtually all significant global health topics raise challenging issues for the law, which are better understood and addressed when considered from an multidisciplinary basis. The collaboration invites interested students, faculty and staff to partake in a free exchange of ideas and collaboration on these important topics.
Supported by the USC Research Collaboration Fund, Professor Sofia Gruskin, director of the Program on Global Health & Human Rights, leads this collaboration alongside USC Gould Professor of Law and Medicine Alexander Capron and USC Research Professor and Associate Dean of Research Charles Kaplan from the School of Social Work.

In Transition: Gender [Identity], Law & Global Health
Each month speakers introduced issues and challenges that arise at the intersection of global health and law, and open the room for conversation. In addition to six discussions focused on transgender rights, law and global health, additional sessions explored a range of interests.
Alongside this year’s exploration of transgender issues, the USC Law and Global Health Collaboration encouraged junior faculty and researchers working at the intersection of law and global health to identify new pathways for research.
