Schools that have a health law program (or that have a group of students interested in health law and healthcare issues) may want to consider forming an alliance with the American Health Lawyers Association.
View a list of student health law groups that have an alliance with AHLA.
The September issue of AHLA Connections magazine includes a student supplement, a section devoted to articles about the school alliance groups.
