• Health Law Externships

    Apply classroom learning in health law externships

    Through a Health Law Externship, you put your classroom learning to work for a law firm, manufacturer, insurer, public health agency, or another organization of interest to you. Externships require a minimum of 114 hours of field work and a classroom component, where you can discuss your field experiences with a faculty member and your fellow students. In the field, you are supervised by an attorney-mentor, who could become an ally in your professional career.

    Externship placements have allowed our students to work in numerous areas -- health care regulation, health policy and advocacy, compliance, litigation, health care transactional work, and medical device law. Students have completed externships at:
