Albany Law School Launches LL.M. in Health and Human Rights

Program to tackle topics like health policy and human rights law

New York's Albany Law School has announced the launch of a new LL.M. program in Health and Human Rights.

The program will address topics at the intersection of health and human rights, two spheres that are seen as increasingly linked.

The new LL.M. in Health and Human Rights will include four to six credits of supervised research, plus courses in the law school’s Health Law Concentration and/or International Law Concentration. Elective topics range from health law subjects such as "Applied Public Policy" and "Legal Issues in Medicine," to international law subjects like "International Child Rights" and "Law of Climate Change."

Students can also choose to take up to 10 credits by cross-registering for several classes at the Univeristy of Albany.

The school hopes that the new LL.M. will appeal to a wide variety of students.

“Students or attorneys who could benefit from the new LL.M. in Health and Human Rights include those who wish to work for health rights advocacy organizations in the U.S. or abroad, designers of public policy, government lawyers seeking to broaden their policy and advocacy expertise, private firm attorneys working in health law who wish to add international human rights law to their skillset, and human rights lawyers who wish to specialize in health-related concerns," according to Albany Law Professor Peter Halewood.
