How to Stay Focused on a Health Law Career
The Health Law Section is excited to announce our new Law Student career podcast, “How to Stay Focused on a Health Law Career.” A link to the podcast is available by clicking here.
In this podcast, we discussed how to stay focused on a health law career, even if you find yourself in a generalist practice. You’ll hear from a variety of lawyers who will share their insights on entering and succeeding in health law, including their own varied paths to doing so.
The panelists will give you practical guidance in how to pursue health law experience and expertise, ways to use your time as a “generalist” to enhance your future health law-focused career, and to enhance your prospects for a job focused in health law.
The panelists (listed below) will give you practical guidance in what studies to pursue while in law school, ways to use your time in law school to enhance your prospects for a job in health law and help you succeed in obtaining an appropriate position once you graduate from law school.
