Professor Mark Hall, director of Wake Forest Law’s Health Law and Policy Program, has been named among the top law journal authors by HeinOnline, which compiles contributions to all major law journals. Hall currently ranks No. 157 out of the top 250 authors.

The ranking is calculated based on an analysis of all articles in HeinOnline. “We then ranked each author in each category: number of times cited by articles, number of times cited by cases, and number of times accessed and averaged the rankings to produce this list of the 250 authors that scored the highest when averaging all categories,” according to the HeinOnline website. This ranking system, which went live in summer 2015, is updated each month here.

Professor Hall is one of the nation’s leading scholars in the areas of health care law, public policy and bioethics. The author or editor of twenty books, including Making Medical Spending Decisions (Oxford University Press), and Health Care Law and Ethics (Aspen), he is currently engaged in research in the areas of heath care reform, access to care by the uninsured, and insurance regulation. Professor Hall has published scholarship in the law reviews at Berkeley, Chicago, Duke, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Stanford, and his articles have been reprinted in a dozen casebooks and anthologies. He also teaches in the University’s Graduate Programs for Bioethics and its MBA program, and he is on the research faculty at the Medical School. Professor Hall regularly consults with government officials, foundations and think tanks about health care public policy issues.
