• Experiential Learning

    Health Law Institute connects you with experiences and people you need to succeed

    The Health Law Institute is committed to exposing you to the health law industry through experiential learning and networking opportunities with professionals (and peers) in the health law community:

    • Health Law Clinic: Medical-Legal Partnership – The first of its kind here in Minnesota, Hamline’s Health Law Institute and United Family Medicine, a community-based clinic providing comprehensive, patient-centered primary care to low-income and medically underserved patients, will be launching a medical-legal partnership in the fall of 2014. One component of this MLP is a Health Law Clinic, which gives you a chance to help low-income patients/clients address legal issues that are impacting their health.

    • Health Law Externships – Through a Health Law Externship, you apply your classroom learning to the real world of health law in a practice and setting you choose. Our externships combine classroom discussion and exercises with a minimum of 114 hours of field work. You are supervised by a faculty member, taught by an adjunct professor experienced in health law, and supervised in the field by an attorney-mentor.

    • Health Law Moot Court Competition - Hamline participates in three health law moot court competitions: the National Health Law Moot Court, the National Health Law Transactional Competition, and the Health Law Regulatory and Compliance Competition. Each year, our students place well among their peers from around the country.

    • Events and Extra-Curricular Activities – Explore new topics in health law and network with health law professionals at the variety of events hosted by the Health Law Institute.

    • Student Health Law Association - Get involved in the community, explore the field of health law, and learn about the diverse opportunities in the evolving health law field, through the Student Health Law Association. The association promotes experiential learning and fellowship among students interested in health law through community service, networking, and peer-support.
