Healthcare Law

Juris Master
Healthcare Law Concentration

Working professionals in all areas of health care can benefit from a deeper understanding of the laws that relate to their jobs. Understanding the basics of torts and contracts, in addition to more specialized laws related to healthcare policy and regulation, will enable you to contribute more to your organization and the people it serves.

Emory Law gives you extraordinary access to an unparalleled combination of knowledge and networking opportunities.  Our alliances include:

  • Centers for Disease Control and Disease Prevention
  • Emory University’s world-class hospital and research center as well as the School of Medicine, School of Nursing, Rollins School of Public Health, Goizueta School of Business, and more.


I felt I had reached the limit of what I could conceptualize about the legal aspects of medicine without a formal education.  Emory Law’s JM Program allows me to provide better care to my patients, better education to my trainees and better service to the University.
