Hofstra to Offer an Online LL.M. in Health Law and Policy

School will also launch an MA in Health Law and Policy, which will accept non-lawyers

New York's Hofstra University School of Law has announced plans to launch two new online graduate programs: a Master of Laws in Health Law and Policy, and a Master of Arts in Health Law and Policy.

Both programs were created in response to "a real demand for legal training among health care professionals," according to Hofstra Law Dean Eric Lane.

The online LL.M. in Health Law and Policy is experienced legal professionals who want to focus their practice on health. The program is designed to be completed in 18 months.

By contrast, the online MA program is aimed at both lawyers as well as non-lawyers such as doctors, insurance professionals, hospital administrators, and more. The online MA in Health Law and Policy is designed to be completed in two years.

Applications are currently being accepted for both programs.

For more information, please see the Hofstra Law press release announcing the launch of the two new online programs.
