Careers in Health Law and Life Sciences
NALP, American Health Lawyers Association, 2013.
Health law is an expanding field, yet many law students and lawyers may not realize that healthcare law embraces almost every substantive area of law and that health law employment opportunities can be found in a wide variety of settings. This 16-page booklet-style brochure created by the American Health Lawyers Association and published in collaboration with NALP provides an overview for law students and lawyers considering a career in health law, offering an introduction to the field; descriptions of the various health law practice settings; the answers to frequently asked questions on preparing for a career in health law; and selected online resources. Types of health law practices addressed include practices within a wide variety of settings including both large and small law firms, solo practices, academic and research institutions, federal, state, and local government agencies, corporations, healthcare provider organizations, non-institutional providers of healthcare, professional and trade associations, third-party payors, and capital financing organizations. FAQs include advice on skills needed for the field of health law, course preparation, whether an advanced degree such as an LLM is helpful, job search resources, and transitioning from a private law practice to a governmental position.
