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.
