Welcome to the Nationally Ranked
Institute for Health Law

The Institute for Health Law was created in 1983 in recognition of the need for an academic forum to study the burgeoning field of health law and foster a dialogue between the legal and health care professions. Since that time, the Institute has grown to offer one of the most comprehensive, and respected health law programs in the country. The Institute today is comprised of students, faculty, researchers, practitioners, lecturers, librarians, and staffers all working together to fulfill a common mission: to educate the health law leaders of tomorrow.

With over 800 alumni and a consistent ranking in US News and World Report as one of the nation’s top health law programs, the Institute is well on its way to fulfilling that mission. But we never rest on our laurels. Just as the health care industry changes, so, too, is the Institute a dynamic force, with new courses, programs and opportunities constantly offered.

And now you have a chance to become a part of this thriving academic environment.

We hope you’ll find everything you’d like to know on these pages, and encourage you to visit us often, not only in cyberspace but in person as well. Whether you’d like to sit down for a chat with a health law professor or to sit in on a classroom discussion, our doors are always open.
