Leadership & Faculty
Professor Karen Porter is Executive Director of the Center. The distinguished members of our faculty help students explore how law both contributes to and, at times, impedes meaningful progress toward healthy communities.
Brooklyn Law School’s cluster of health law courses provide a strong introduction to the field, with the opportunity for even more focused concentration for students interested in the field. From broad legal topics such as Administrative Law and Products Liability to more specialized courses like Mental Health Law, students come away with knowledge of the various legal aspects of health and science.
Health Law & Policy Fellowship
The Health Law and Policy Fellowship is designed for Law School students who have demonstrated outstanding academic and/or professional achievement in health, public health, science, and/or biotechnology, and who are interested in pursuing legal careers in those fields.
In the Health Law Externship program, students work in various public sector field placements that maintain a health law practice. They are supervised by an attorney at the placement site. The work may be advisory, transactional, or policy-oriented, or may require direct client or constituent advocacy.
