The Law & Health Care Program: Making an Impact
Expanding health insurance to uncovered populations. Physician-assisted suicide. The use of genetic information. Racial and ethnic disparities in access to health care. These and other issues are among the most complex and controversial in our society today.
A pioneer in health care law, the Law and Health Care Program (L&HCP) combines education and research on emerging medical, health policy and legal matters, addressing health law issues from both legal and interdisciplinary perspectives, and capitalizes on access to the state and federal government. Ranked #1 in U.S. News & World Report's survey of the nation's best law school specialty programs, the L&HCP continues to meet the growing demand for lawyers and policy makers capable of addressing this increasingly complex field.
