You've seen the headlines: A woman is arrested after giving birth because a drug screening test was positive. A court orders a pregnant woman to submit to any and all medical treatment her obstetrician deems necessary. A new abortion law raises questions about the longevity of Roe v. Wade. Thoughtful people with expertise in both medicine and law need to unpack these kinds of issues, with both clinicians and the public.
Julie Cantor, MD | JD — Dr. Cantor does just that. A faculty member at the UCLA School of Law, creative thinker, and graduate of Stanford University, UC Berkeley School of Law, and the Yale University School of Medicine, Dr. Cantor offers unique perspectives on issues at the intersection of law, medicine, and medical ethics. Drawing on academic articles, case law, history, and art, her lectures are engaging multi-media presentations that navigate cutting-edge dilemmas, leaving audiences with a deeper understanding of complex issues and a firmer grasp on potential solutions. And she is often called upon by the national and international media to comment on problems that arise where law and medicine meet.
Dr. Cantor is also the founder + CEO of Harlen, a brand that elevates luxury work bags for women to Modern Careerpieces — works of art for the art of work. Both the Collection and its materials are handcrafted in Italy in the storied ateliers that have perfected this craft over generations. Harlen was inspired by those who lead lives of significance with style, and every piece moves opportunity forward for women and girls worldwide.
