Beazley Institute for Health Law and Policy Ranked #1 Health Law Program
Loyola University Chicago School of Law’s Beazley Institute for Health Law and Policy was recently ranked the #1 health law program in the country by Law Street. Earlier this year, the Institute was ranked #3 by U.S. News and World Report. These top rankings are a testament to the high caliber of the Institute’s professors, administrators, and students.
Law Street used six criteria to evaluate each health law program: job placement, curriculum depth, networking, extra-curricular activities, location and “other” (respect in the field, rankings of other organizations). The Beazley Institute received top marks in each category. Loyola’s Health Law program also received extra credit for the high concentration of top firms in the area, opening pathways for their JD and LLM graduates. The Beazley Institute’s total score was significantly higher than the second place program. Specific programs offered by the Institute and cited by Law Street include the Health Justice Project (a medical-legal partnership clinic meeting the needs of the underserved) as well as the L. Edward Bryant, Jr. National Transactional Law Competition.
