The New Mexico Public Law Health Handbook

The purpose of this Public Health Law Handbook is to provide judges with an overview of the basic constitutional and statutory authorities and principles that govern New Mexico public health law. Since the use of public health law in a judicial setting is infrequent, Clifford Rees, J.D., Adjunct Faculty/Senior Researcher at the University of New Mexico’s Center for Disaster Medicine, in cooperation with the Judicial Education Center, designed this Handbook to give judges and practicing attorneys a practical tool to quickly become familiar with basic public health legal concepts.
