Loyola’s Nationally Ranked Health Law Program Now Offers Two Master’s Degrees Online
Loyola University Chicago School of Law has been a leader in health law education for decades, offering its first health law course in 1923 and establishing the Beazley Institute for Health Law and Policy in 1984.  Ranked among the top ten health law programs in the nation by US News and World Report since 1992, Loyola University Chicago School of Law has educated over 1500 attorneys, health care professionals, and law students who have chosen from over 60 health law courses in five different degree programs and certificates, including two master’s programs that are now offered 100% online.  

Online Master of Jurisprudence (MJ) in Health Law for Health Care Professionals

First established in 1986, the MJ degree is a legal degree designed especially for those who work in health care — physicians, health care providers, managers, compliance officers, pharmacists , policy makers — enabling them to comprehensively evaluate medical-legal issues and provide the confidence needed to work effectively with legal counsel, regulators, and patients.

Loyola’s cutting-edge curriculum gives MJ candidates a comprehensive working knowledge of the regulatory environment surrounding health care and the skills essential to successfully navigate the business, legal, and policy forces driving our vast and complex health care delivery system.

Health care professionals who are ready to make a bigger impact in compliance, risk management, informatics, bioethics, patient safety, health policy, liability and dispute resolution among other fields can benefit from Loyola’s MJ in Health Law program.   

Classes are forming now for this two-year degree, taught 100% online by leading health

industry professionals and national experts on the faculty at Loyola University Chicago.

Online Master of Laws (LLM) in Health Law for Attorneys


Attorneys who are looking to expand their practices to service health care clients, build a deeper knowledge base in health law, or who wish to understand the complex legal issues facing the country’s fastest growing industry, can now begin their journey into the rapidly expanding field of health law by taking the Master of Laws in Health Law Online at Loyola University Chicago School of Law.

First established in 1987, Loyola’s LLM program has focused on the legal, regulatory, political, ethical, and economic realities of health care delivery. Each health law course allows LLM students to focus on core skills and knowledge areas while developing practical lawyering skills. In Corporate Transactions in Health Care, for example, students prepare transaction documents and walk through the key components of major transactions. Similarly, in HIPAA and Privacy Law, students analyze and draft privacy policies. And in the Life Sciences course, students discover the intersection of health and intellectual property and become familiar with the process of approving new drugs and devices.

Full- and part-time classes are forming now for both Online and Campus-based LLM in Health Law programs.  Both are taught by leading health industry professionals and national experts on the faculty at Loyola University Chicago.
