Shaping the Future of Health Law

UCLA faculty are shaping the future of this dynamic and critically important field. Through publications, convenings, and advice to government and industry leaders, they articulate the legal powers, duties, and constraints that apply to government action on health care, public health, and the social determinants of health.

The need for innovative and practical health reform solutions has never been greater—nor has the complexity of the legal landscape reforms must navigate. With a growing cadre of prominent health law and policy faculty and established centers of excellence in related fields, UCLA is uniquely positioned to be a national leader in this dynamic and rapidly expanding field. The Health Law and Policy Program fosters cross-disciplinary partnerships within UCLA and beyond to develop federal, state, local, and global solutions for rebuilding our broken health system, securing access to health care, protecting the public’s health, and realizing health justice. The Health Law and Policy Program also serves as a hub for JD, LLM, MLS, and other UCLA graduate students pursuing careers in health law and policy.
