Dr. Julie Cantor teaches Health Law and Policy and Medical Ethics, Reproduction, and the Law. She is a national expert on issues that fall at the intersection of health, ethics, and law.

In 2004, Dr. Cantor co-authored the article, “The Limits of Conscientious Objection: May Pharmacists Refuse to Fill Prescriptions for Emergency Contraception?” (New England Journal of Medicine, Vol. 351, No. 19). It was a provocative piece about the ethics of conscientious objection by pharmacists who refuse to fill prescriptions for the “morning-after pill,” and, as a result of that article, Dr. Cantor delivered numerous presentations across the country on that hotly debated topic. She has lectured widely on other issues, including a recent lecture on the legal issues at play in the Bernard Madoff scandal.

Dr. Cantor has previously taught at Yale University, where she created the course she now teaches at UCLA Law.
