From protecting the rights of the disabled to litigating medical malpractice and fraud, health law addresses some of the greatest challenges in the modern legal system.


Our master of laws in health law program is ideal for lawyers and law school graduates at all stages of their careers who would like to build a specialized foundation in a legal field that intersects with a variety of areas including corporate and labor law, religious liberty and privacy issues. We’ll prepare you to assume leadership roles in government, pharmaceutical, insurance, nonprofit or health care organizations.

As health care becomes more complex and the regulatory landscape increasingly difficult for businesses, governments and nonprofits to navigate, there is a growing demand for lawyers who have a comprehensive understanding of the different components of the system. You’ll examine topics such as food and drug law, workers compensation, bioethics and disability law. And we offer the flexibility to complete the program either full time or part time, depending on your individual needs and professional schedule.

The technologically sophisticated and contemporary Lynne L. Pantalena Law Library is a valuable resource for accessing materials, from the most recent periodicals to 18th-century legal treatises. You’ll also hone your persuasive writing and research skills during the thesis course in which you’ll write a master's thesis for the Quinnipiac Law Review. And you’ll have opportunities to write for the Health Law Journal, an entirely student-run publication that examines issues relating to topics such as forensic evidence, medical malpractice, and fraud and abuse compliance.

Programme Structure

  • LLM candidates are required to complete 24 credits, at least 18 of which are earned in designated health law courses. Of those 18 credits, 3 are in a required advanced research/thesis course that culminates in the writing of a master's thesis of length and quality suitable for Law Review publication.
  • Six of the 24 credits may be earned in non-health law courses, subject to the approval of the program director. Students in the LLM program may not take courses that substantially duplicate those completed in their JD program studies. LLM candidates must maintain a 2.80 GPA.
