The Health Law LLM provides an opportunity for individuals who have already earned their JD to receive specialized training and gain expertise in the health law field. It can be completed on a full- or part-time basis and is designed to permit both junior and experienced lawyers to enhance their knowledge of health law and demonstrate their commitment to that field of practice.
Admission is limited to graduates of ABA-accredited law schools who possess a strong record of academic achievement and/or of achievement in practice. Only a handful of students are admitted each year.
LLM candidates are required to complete 24 credits, at least 18 of which are earned in designated health law courses. Of those 18 credits, 3 are in a required advanced research/thesis course that culminates in the writing of a master's thesis of length and quality suitable for law review publication.
Six of the 24 credits may be earned in non-health law courses, subject to the approval of the program director. Students in the LLM program may not take courses that substantially duplicate those completed in their JD program studies. LLM candidates must maintain a 2.80 GPA.
Application for admission and accompanying documents should be submitted approximately two months prior to entering semester.
