CUNY: Health Law
Students learn the law and skills needed to represent individual and institutional clients in a wide variety of litigation and non-litigation settings. Students examine how the Constitution, statutes, and the common law determine access to health care, regulate the quality of patient care, and resolve disputes among doctors, hospitals, and patients. Through role-playing exercises and simulations as well as in their externship placements, students also learn relevant practical skills such as interviewing and counseling a client, trial practice, legal research and writing, class action litigation, motion practice, document drafting, appellate advocacy, and public policy and legislative advocacy.
