The core of the health law curriculum consists of four courses:

  • LAW 654/654A - Bioethics and Law
  • LAW 654B - Health Care Litigation: Representation of Individuals & Entities
  • LAW 608A - Public Health Law and Ethics 

In addition, there is a range of other valuable electives from our online Graduate Certificates in Health Law and in the areas of disability law, insurance law, intellectual property, information privacy and others. Students are also allowed to take a wide range of courses from other schools and departments in the world-class research university, including for example CPH 564 - Public Health Advocacy and MGMT 538 - Health Care Organization and Management.

JD students completing the four core courses, along with six credits of electives and a substantial paper in the field, can earn a health law certificate (PDF). This certificate recognizes students’ specialized training in this field.
