The mission is to identify and facilitate (through education, the conduct and dissemination of scholarship, and performance of service activities) opportunities for members of the medical and legal professions, working together and with others, to foster improvements in the quality of life enjoyed by individuals and to promote public health in Florida, the United States, and globally.

The Center explores educational, research and advocacy avenues for collaboration and cooperation between the medical and legal professions on behalf of the well-being of consumers who are both physicians' patients and attorneys' clients. The Center is led by Professor Marshall B. Kapp, J.D., M.P.H., who is a professor in the College of Medicine Department of Geriatrics, Professor of Medicine and Law in the College of Law, and an affiliate of the FSU Claude Pepper Institute.

The Center is also the editor and sponsor of the Medical-Legal Studies SSRN electronic journal,  which contains many more publications related to the field. The Center also maintains a health law book collection. Florida State University faculty, staff and students are encouraged to browse through the online book collection and may stop by the Center to borrow books of interest.
