Campus-based students pursuing health law degrees and certificates are an important part of the law school community and our institute. We encourage students to take advantage of the multitude of curricular and extracurricular opportunities we provide.
The Health Law Certificate is a special designation on the JD transcript recognizing and signaling to future employers that a student has completed a concentration of courses and practical skills requirements in the area of health law.
Students enrolled in the JD and LLM in Health Law campus programs may pursue a concentration in compliance as part of their studies. Students doing so may be eligible for industry exams and certifications through Loyola’s unique partnerships with leading compliance associations.
With the many health care resources in the Chicago area, students are afforded an exciting opportunity to work with industry experts through Loyola's prestigious externship program. Students interested in obtaining a health law externship should review information about the available sites on Pearson. Students are encouraged to consult with Beazley Institute Executive Director, Kristin Finn, to receive assistance in determining their goals and site preferences.
