The Family Health Law & Policy Institute

Our legal system and policies shape the health and welfare of families in myriad ways. At the same time, how families are created and function affects family health law and policy. The Family Health Law and Policy Institute at Delaware Law prepares students for careers in family law and policy, health law, and/or the dynamic intersection of the two.

The institute offers a rich curriculum, including a robust field component that allows students to acquire real-world experience in a variety of possible settings: the veterans clinic, medical-legal partnerships, relevant law firm practice, clerkships with family law judges, or corporate placements in diverse areas, such as pharmaceuticals and insurance. The institute also offers academic and practitioner-focused symposia and continuing legal education programs.

We also promote community outreach and encourage and support faculty and student research. Through the completion of a flexible selection of courses and field experience, JD candidates may earn a certificate in family health law and policy.
