Science and Global Health
The field of health law has become increasingly complex and important, touching on practically all major areas of legal policy and research. From the implications of the Affordable Care Act and access to healthcare, to global development, issues of privacy and employment law, to questions around biotechnology, the legal study of science and global health is critical.
Located in Seattle, a hub for health care and biomedical innovation, and with close ties to UW Medicine, the #1 public academic medical center in the U.S., the University of Washington School of Law is particularly well positioned as a leader in this field, with a long history of multidisciplinary engagement, teaching and research.
