The 24-credit Online LLM in Health Law degree program is designed to be completed in two years as a part-time student. Students may start in the program in the fall, spring or summer terms and must remain enrolled for consecutive terms. Online LLM students are also required to attend two Education Immersion Weekends during their time in the program.

All online LLM in Health Law students must take these required courses:

Introduction to Health Law and Policy (3) (must be taken in first term)

*Beginning in Fall 2016, the LLM Thesis Project course will be replaced by two 2-credit courses to be taken in the last two terms in the program: LAW 995 LLM Thesis Project Term One; LAW 996 LLM Thesis Project Term Two. The traditional LLM Thesis Project course (LAW 999, offered for 3 credits) will only be offered in Fall 2016 for those students completing their studies that term.
