Center for Health Law and Policy

The mission of the Center for Health Law and Policy is to educate Quinnipiac students about the extraordinarily complex set of state and federal laws associated with the field of health law and all its interrelated areas. Quinnipiac’s Health Law Program received an A+ ranking for the sixth year in a row in the “Back to School 2023” issue of Prelaw Magazine; one of only 15 programs to receive such a ranking.

What We Do

  • The Center for Health Law and Policy interacts with attorneys who practice in specialized areas of health law to provide guidance and experiential opportunities for students interested in healthcare-related legal and policy issues. The Center is especially beneficial for law students who are members of the Health Law Concentration. Our law students have practiced health law through internships and externships at various firms in addition to the Connecticut Office of Attorney General, the CT Department of Public Health, Hartford Healthcare, hospitals and other corporations.

  • The center provides students with significant opportunities for interprofessional connections. The close proximity to the Netter School of Medicine enables law students and faculty to collaborate with medical students and faculty and share resources. Additionally, the Center supports the Health Law Society — an interdisciplinary organization open to students, alumni and faculty of the Schools of Law, Business and Health Sciences and the Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine who are interested in discussing issues in health law and relevant career opportunities. The Center, through members of the faculty, also advises the Health Law Journal, a student-run publication encouraging discourse on both practical and theoretical issues in the fields of health law and policy, biomedical ethics and medical-legal research.

  • The Center periodically sponsors conferences that address significant developments in health law jurisprudence.
