About Annals of Health Law: The Beazley Institute for Health Law and Policy publishes the Annals, a
bi-annual journal, which contains articles of particular relevance to health care practitioners, policy
makers-+ and scholars. The Annals has been published since 1992 and is managed and edited entirely by
students. The Annals’ staff members are selected at the end of their second semester of study. All
members are accepted on the basis of their academic standing and their performance in a school-wide

publishes two issues per year. The Winter Issue covers general health law topics, while a portion of the
Summer Issue is devoted to the Annual Health Law and Policy Symposium topic that varies each year.

The Annals of Health Law editorial staff is proud to present the student authored journal, Advance
Directive. An advance directive is a legal document indicating an individual’s preferences for future
health care. Similarly, the mission of Advance Directive is to create a forum to address current issues as
well as future directions within the complex field of health law. As the student component of Annals,
Advance Directive’s contributors present a wide range of perspectives on emerging issues in health law.
