Health Law Programs

With a focus on developing the next generation of leaders in health law, our academic programs train law students and early-career researchers and practitioners to apply their specialized legal skills to improve population health. Our interns, LL.M. students, and fellows gain theoretical and practical training across a diversity of topics in the field of health law, including health and human rights, health systems and governance, infectious diseases, non-communicable diseases, and global health security.

The internship program is designed for students pursuing their first degree in law, who have an interest in health law and seek technical and research experience in the field. Our LL.M. programs are for law graduates who wish to supplement their legal training and develop their expertise in health law. Our one-year post-graduate fellowship program welcomes early-career lawyers to the O’Neill Institute team to deepen their expertise and contribute to cutting-edge research and projects. Consistent with our mission to address the most pressing national and global health issues, our academic programs are open to U.S. and foreign law students and lawyers.
