Hofstra Law Launches Joint J.D. and Master of Public Health Program

Expanding on its commitment to the field of health law, the Maurice A. Deane School of Law is offering a new J.D./Master of Public Health joint degree program with Hofstra University’s School of Health Sciences and Human Services for students entering in fall 2014.

As legal and policy changes increasingly become important tools to improve the health of the public, students in the J.D./M.P.H. program will become familiar with the links between law and the delivery of health care.

“The J.D./M.P.H. program will teach law students how to use legal knowledge and skills to improve population health,” said Janet L. Dolgin, the Jack and Freda Dicker Distinguished Professor of Health Care Law and director of the Gitenstein Institute for Health Law and Policy. “The program will prepare students to work successfully in the rapidly evolving world of health care.”

Students must apply to and be accepted by both the Law School and School of Health Sciences and Human Services. They have the opportunity to obtain both degrees in four years.
