Center for Law, Science and Global Health
The Center for Law, Science and Global Health was established in 1994. It provides the leadership, academic courses, academic advising, career counseling, practicums, externships and internships, for all of the University of Washington School of Law’s Health Law programs. Health Law encompasses a broad range of topics, ranging from government regulation of health law to health care business transactions, telemedicine, finance and reimbursement, to the ethical controversies presented in various areas of medicine. Our robust curriculum includes over 30 courses in Health Law and seminars on current topics. We add new health law courses every year as we want our students to be well equipped to obtain jobs and to succeed in their careers. Students will have an opportunity to attend area conferences to meet and learn from the best health law lawyers in the northwest, many of whom are nationally recognized in their areas. Seattle has a very large healthcare and biomedical community. We also sponsor and participate in numerous conferences locally, nationally and internationally.
The Center’s programs include the following options for students:
