Health Law

The Health Law Institute offers a large and comprehensive health law curriculum.

Core health law classes at Hamline Law are taught by faculty members with national and international reputations. Through a combination of the core, elective, and experiential learning courses, students will gain a strong foundation for a career in health law. Students are able to earn a General Health Law Certificate and/or a Health Care Compliance Certificate by following the Health Law Institute's certificate requirements.

Finally, any good health lawyer will need other non-health related course depending on his or her specialization. For example, a health lawyer representing a large insurance company likely needs to take a course on corporations. Similarly, a student interested in medical malpractice should take evidence.
