Pitt Law's Health Law Program Ranked #12 in Nation by 2017 U.S. News and World Report

The University of Pittsburgh School of Law’s health law program is now ranked 12th in the nation—out of nearly 200 law schools—in the most recent U.S. News & World Report law school specialty rankings.

"I am delighted that our health law program continues to be recognized for its excellence. Due to its prominent faculty and interdisciplinary focus, students in our health law program continue to be highly sought after by employers,” said Pitt Law Dean William M. Carter, Jr.

The Health Law Certificate Program has the advantage of being affiliated with the world-class, comprehensive health care facilities available at the University of Pittsburgh. Pitt Law is only three blocks away from the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center System's complex of hospitals and numerous institutes and clinics. 

The city of Pittsburgh is host to a large number of law firms and attorneys who specialize in or have departments in health law. Students meet and network with many of these attorneys, as well as health care practitioners, lawmakers, and representatives of consumer groups, through the innovative Current Issues in Health Law course.

Previously, Pitt Law's health law program was ranked #14 in the 2016 U.S. News and World Report law school specialty rankings.
