Juris Master in Health Care Law

Health law is a dynamic and increasingly important area of law. The healthcare industry is heavily regulated and lawyers are needed to advise a wide range of providers and stakeholders:

  • Hospitals
  • Physicians
  • Nursing homes
  • Pharmaceutical companies
  • Insurers
  • Regulators
  • Health services contractors
  • Patients

Because of the breadth of health law, it intersects many other fields of law. Health lawyers work in diverse areas such as health policy, regulatory compliance, business formation, public health, malpractice and bioethics. This evolving area of law provides opportunities for lawyers to practice in various settings, including private firms, healthcare institutions, government agencies (federal, state and local) and nonprofit organizations.
