Health Law Programs

Students often ask about health law programs around the country, whether it is for summer-school classes or to continue their health-law education after earning their J.D. Many of the schools that offer the LL.M. also offer a joint-degree J.D./M.P.H. program, a non-degree certificate program in health law, or an S.J.D. (or equivalent degree). In addition, many law schools offer a general LL.M. degree with an opportunity to specialize in health law or a certificate in health law for their J.D. candidates.

In addition to the law schools' offerings, many public health schools have strong offerings in health law, either through a health-law concentration or in conjunction with an affiliated law school.


Available as a benefit to all association members, the AHLA Mentoring Program fosters even greater collegiality and bonding across our various substantive health law practice areas and across our varying experiences as healthcare lawyers.
