Special Indiana Health Law Review Volume to Honor Professor Eleanor Kinney: Request for Proposals


Our celebrated and generous colleague Eleanor Kinney passed away late last year. To honor her and her legacy, the Indiana Health Law Review is soliciting papers for an honorary special issue. The papers should be substantive new work by the author, but we invite the author to reflect on Eleanor’s work, legacy, or the how the work submitted was influenced by Eleanor’s work.

This is an initial call for proposals. Proposals should take the form of an abstract in the 100-200 word range. Abstracts will be reviewed by an editorial committee comprised of IU McKinney faculty and past and present editors of the Indiana Health Law Review. Abstracts should be submitted before June 1, 2019 in order to be considered for this special issue. Final papers should be 4,000-6,000 words in length and will be due by August 15, 2019.

We hope that authors will consider writing in the areas that dominated Professor Kinney’s scholarship. She was a widely published author on America’s health care system, health reform medical malpractice, Medicaid, and healthcare in administrative law

Professor Kinney received her J.D. and B.A. (with distinction in history) from Duke University. She was awarded a master’s degree in public health from the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill and a master’s degree in European history from the University of Chicago. Professor Kinney was a member for the American Law Institute. She served as the Hall Render Professor of Law and was the founding director of the William S. and Christine S. Hall Center for Law and Health at Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law. Professor Kinney served as a consultant to the Administrative Conference of the United States, President Clinton’s Task Force for Health Care Reform, and the Indiana Commission on Health Care for the Working Poor. She was appointed by the governor of Indiana to the Executive Board of the Indiana State Department of Health and to other task forces and advisory boards. She also served as chair of the Patient Safety Subcommittee of the Indiana Commission on Excellence in Health Care.

Please feel free to pass this on to colleagues.
