In 1997, the Office of the Attorney General with the Bioethics Institute of The Johns Hopkins University began a project concerning health care services and the law. They joined together to identify in what significant ways the legal system affects the quality of care at the end of life, and to develop priorities for legal reform.

Created by the Attorney General in 1997, the Advisory Board on Ways that the Legal System Affects Care at the End of Life included representation from diverse organizations and individuals. The Board served as a forum for developing ideas and discussing goals and priorities. The Board disbanded in Jan. 1999 after funding ended.
