Important learning occurs outside the classroom, too. Loyola students have a myriad of choices in extra curricular activities in health law.
Most students interested in health law are active members of the Health Law Society. HLS is a student run organization aimed to introduce students to the field of health law. Law students, professors, professional administrators and attorneys collaborate to provide networking events, professional career panels, and health law activities for the Loyola health law community.
The Annals of Health Law journal is the official student run publication of the Beazley Institute. Each year the Annals publishes two issues of the journal. Annals members also publish an online publication, Advance Directive, which features student-authored articles.
