A comprehensive education in one of the fastest-growing areas of law
Mitchell Hamline is uniquely positioned to offer students a top-level, comprehensive education in Health Law, one of the fastest-growing and most complex areas in the legal field.
Our Health Law Institute gives students real-life experience in legal, health care, and business settings. The Public Health Law Center is a policy organization that works to improve public health through the power of law.
Through a partnership with the University of Minnesota, our students can earn a J.D. and Master of Public Health in Public Administration & Policy in four years of full-time study.
Our Health Law Institute is the primary reason why Mitchell Hamline’s health law program was ranked 13th nationally by U.S. News & World Report, 2016 edition.

The Institute’s national speaker series and advanced courses for working professionals take education beyond law students to the Upper Midwest’s accomplished community of health care attorneys, practitioners, and business professionals.
