St. Louis University is known to have one of the best Health Law departments in the Country. You should see if there are any rankings for health law departments on the U.S. News site, too (www.usnews.com).

I am currently an LL.M student at St. Louis University and I would suggest you look at other programs to specialize in FDA law and international issues. The course pickings this year have been slim and I am overall disappointed with the program. Their medical device/FDA professor left last year and they have yet to replace him. The health law offerings are primarily general (health policy, reg. of health care providers) and these were classes that I had taken during my J.D. I have filled the LL.M requirements with a Medicare seminar, antitrust, non-profits, an excelled Fraud and Abuse seminar (taught by a practitioner), and a Health Care transactional course. Long story short, SLU is incredibly expensive and the offerings from the renown faculty just aren't there. I did see that Loyola University in Chicago has a fellowship/LL.M position offering full tuition and a stipend. Each university offering a health law LL.M has a different niche, example IUPUI in Indianapolis focuses on bioethics, so definitely do your research. I do know that University of Texas in Houston and University of Maryland also have respected programs. After my experience at SLU I am not entirely sure what supports their consistently excellent ranking. I am actually considering doing a clerkship because the job market sucks. There is something to be said about the statement I have seen on other threads "firms don't know what to do with LL.Ms because you are not a lateral hire." I went to the LL.M after law school and the search has been very frustrating. Best of luck to you.

I strongly suggest Indiana University School of Law Indianapolis for health law LL.M. They have a very distinguished and challenging health law program. Being in a campus with whole scale of medical institutions and research centers usually adds an extra advantage to the program, along with many internship options for students. Also, Elly Lilly Pharmaceuticals is located in downtown Indianapolis.

If you are not bound to the US, I can recommend the LL.M. in Health Law at Nottingham Law School (NTU), England. I am currently doing my LLM there (European Law) and am very very pleased with my decision. As the school is also the leading provider for LPC and BVC courses, it is - especially for you as a lawyer - an ideal opportunity to get into contact with some English (and continental European...like myself being from Germany) lawyers.

Though there are several choices, I think not all the programs in US see their international students as a sole source of income. Plus, just imagining of a professional education, one or two years in UK with all those living costs and conditions is giving me the chills, unless if you enjoy living like a sardine in a can :))

Of course, studying in the UK (usually) means making some compromises as regards the living standard. But it is not that bad! Ok, maybe in London...
You spend your time in the library anyway and they are very good ;-)

I would start my search from these HEALTHCARE LAW rankings: http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/grad/law/health

Simply check the websites and see which one floats the boat :)))

I did not understand exactly what do you mean. $40.000 is median total cost of an LL.M. program in US, which is still quite affordable for a person who seeks professional post doctorate education. For more information, you can google living costs and quality in Europe

I'm not sure if you're still looking, but Georgetown (top 10 for healthcare law) has a relatively new Global Health Law LLM program with lots of emphasis on international health, trade, IP, food and drug, etc.
