The Institute of Health Law (IDS), founded in 1993 by Prof. Olivier Guillod and Prof. Dominique Sprumont, is a University Institute affiliated with the Faculty of Law of the University of Neuchâtel. Unique within Switzerland, the IDS is recognised as one of the University of Neuchâtel’s Centres of Excellence.

The IDS aims to develop and disseminate teaching, research and academic exchanges relating to Health Law. It regularly organises conferences and seminars on issues within the law, biomedical sciences and ethics. It operates in a multidisciplinary manner, and encourages a comparative approach to the law.

The Institute regularly publishes books and its own review in the field of Health Law.
