Earning both the Health Law and Health Care Compliance Certificates
Mitchell Hamline J.D. students can earn both the Health Law and Health Care Compliance Certificates. Most courses required by either certificate are also required by, or can at least count toward requirements of, the other certificate. While the chart shows the most efficient way to earn both certificates, it is not the only way. All students are encouraged to work with their advisor when planning their course schedule. Please fill out the Notice of Intent form to be assigned to an advisor.
