Law Students: Study Health Law Online

Loyola University Chicago’s Beazley Institute for Health Law and Policy is pleased to offer JD students the opportunity to enroll in its cutting edge, online health law courses during the Summer 2014 term.  This first-ever Online Summer Session will allow you to strengthen your knowledge of core health law concepts and to gain exposure to key areas which you may not be taught at your home law school. Courses are taught by our experienced faculty, all of whom are dedicated to enhancing your practice-ready knowledge and skills. We invite you to join us to study health law online this summer. 

The Courses*
We provide a cutting-edge health law curriculum, developed in conjunction with a committee of leading health lawyers, industry professionals, and national experts, to health law students across the country. The following courses will be offered during Summer 2014. 

Accelerated Term: May 19-July 6, 2014 (7 weeks)

Regular Online Summer Term: May 6-August 11, 2014 (14 weeks)

*Loyola University Chicago reserves the right to modify course offerings and dates until summer term registration begins in March 2014.

**This course is non-graded, meaning students will earn credit and a grade of pass/fail.


The Details
American Bar Association regulations allow JD students to earn up to four online credits in a single term and up to twelve online credits total.  Students must have completed 28 credit hours in order to enroll in online courses. Loyola University Chicago JD students have been approved to take up to four credits during the Summer Online Session. Students from other schools are advised to first consult with their law school to obtain permission to take online courses through Loyola. Each non-Loyola student must apply as a summer visiting student, which requires obtaining a letter from your law school granting you permission to take courses at Loyola University Chicago.

Please contact health-law@luc.edu with all questions about the Summer Online Session.  Academic advising for this term is available upon request.

The Process
Sign up today to indicate your interest in the Online Summer Session. Plan to take no more than four total credits of coursework during the term. Official enrollment will take place in spring 2014.

The visiting student application for non-Loyola students can be found here. You are not required to submit an application fee for the Online Summer Session.

The Costs
Tuition for the Online Summer Session is $1,355 per credit hour.  Additional student fees may apply.
