Law & Health Care Program

Maryland Carey Law leads the nation in preparing tomorrow's leaders for these increasingly complex issues.

Helping states implement the vast programmatic changes due to the Affordable Care Act.
Influencing legislation to help break the vicious cycle of addiction.
Identifying how the law should change with advances in health technology
Collaborating with key stakeholders on the FDA regulation of probiotics.





The program’s interprofessional and practical approach exposes health law students directly to the industry and breaks down the barriers between what lawyers do and what health professionals do, all with the goal of creating a better health care system.

Maryland Carey Law’s Health Law Program benefits from the scholarship and opportunities provided by the University of Maryland’s Baltimore campus, from its Schools of Medicine, Dentistry, Nursing, Pharmacy and Social Work, as well as the law school’s proximity to leading state and federal government health care agencies, such as the National Institutes of Health.
