Launch Your Health Law Career at AUWCL

Health law is dynamic and diverse. Health lawyers work in many different settings, representing and advising policymakers, government agencies, patients, health care providers, insurers, and pharmaceutical, biologic, medical device, food, and beverage companies. Health care spending makes up nearly 20% of the US economy. Legislation, regulations, and case law at the federal and state level promote healthy living conditions and access to health care, protect patients’ privacy and autonomy, contain costs and eliminate fraud and abuse, and ensure the safety of pharmaceuticals and other products. Attorneys play a vital role and health law is consistently identified as one of the hottest employment markets for new lawyers. The field of health care compliance is also burgeoning and our students are well prepared to engage in this growing area.
