Familiarity with the law is particularly central to the success of health and science professionals, whether it provides the framework within which they work or whether it is the subject of their research. Health and science professionals increasingly deal with the modern regulatory state, participate in legal processes, research legal actors and institutions, and interact with legal systems. Yet most health and science professionals have little training in understanding the complexities and nuances of the law and legal processes.
The UC Hastings MSL for Health & Science professionals is designed for individuals who do not seek to practice law, but who instead want to equip themselves with a more sophisticated understanding of legal reasoning and doctrine. If you are a health or science professional who interacts with, relies upon, researches subjects involving, or works with patients or clients that are intertwined with the law, the UC Hastings MSL degree will give you the tools you need to do your job better.
