The Saint Louis University School of Law Center for Health Law Studies is once again ranked the top program in health care law by U.S. News & World Report for the 2023 rankings. The program has been ranked number one for all but two of the past eighteen years.
Established in 1982, the Center is one of the first law school programs to focus on the intersection of the health care and legal system. Under direction from nationally renowned faculty, the Center has consistently produced groundbreaking scholarship and highly regarded alumni that can be found across the country and the globe.
“We are thrilled to be recognized by our peers as a leader in the health law community,” said Sidney D. Watson, the Jane and Bruce Robert Professor of Law and director of the Center for Health Law Studies. “As health law continues to grow, the top distinction is an honor we greatly appreciate. We remain committed to our mission of strong scholarship and service to others coupled with our innovative approach to classroom and service-learning for our students."
Founded in a collaborative and supportive approach to scholarship and teaching, the Center is well known as the co-host of American Society of Law, Medicine and Ethics’ Health Law Scholars Workshop where a small group of new scholars can present their work for comment to some of the academy’s most seasoned scholars.
The Center for Health Law Studies continues to grow and change. Most recently, an announcement was made that Dr. Michael Sinha will join the faculty in the fall. As a practicing medical doctor with deep roots in legal scholarship, Dr. Sinha will bring a unique prospective to the Center’s expertise and leadership.
