Health Law Programs

LL.M. and Schools of Public Health

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. These schools can also be a useful source of information about upcoming conferences and even substantive developments in health law. 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 not listed below 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.
