Bio

 

James G. Hodge, Jr., J.D., LL.M. is Associate Dean for Grants and External Funds and Lincoln Professor of Health Law and Ethics at the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law, at Arizona State University.  

Prior to joining ASU in August, 2009, he was a Professor at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health; Adjunct Professor of Law at Georgetown University Law Center; Executive Director of the Centers for Law and the Public's Health; and a Core Faculty member of the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics.

Through his scholarly and applied work, Professor Hodge delves into multiple areas of public health law, global health law, ethics, and human rights. The recipient of the 2006 Henrik L. Blum Award for Excellence in Health Policy from the American Public Health Association, he has drafted (with others) several public health law reform initiatives. His diverse, funded projects include work on (1) the legal framework underlying the use of volunteer health professionals during emergencies; (2) the compilation, study, and analysis of state genetics laws and policies as part of a multi-year NIH-funded project, (3) historical and legal bases underlying school vaccination programs, (4) international tobacco policy for the World Health Organization's Tobacco Free Initiative, (5) legal and ethical distinctions between public health practice and research; (6) legal underpinnings of partner notification and expedited partner therapies; and (7) public health law case studies in multiple states. He is a national expert on public health information privacy law and ethics, having consulted with DHHS, CDC, FDA, CMS, OHRP, APHA, CSTE, APHL, and others on privacy issues.
