Health Law and Policy



Health care is one of the most regulated industries in the world, leading to a host of legal and bioethical questions. With the recent passage of comprehensive health care reform, it is also one of the fastest-growing areas of law. Health care practitioners need a strong foundation in business law, administrative law, and torts.

In addition to the learning from leading health scholars on the law school’s faculty, law students can take courses at The Ohio State University College of Public Health and consider multiple joint-degree options. Both the M.P.H. and the M.H.A. programs at Ohio State are highly ranked nationally.
