Health Law & Policy Institute

The UH Law Center's
Health Law program is
tied for #3 in the 2018
U.S. News & World Report
rankings.

Founded in 1978, the Health Law & Policy Institute at the University of Houston Law Center is one of the oldest and most renown in the country. The Health Law program is consistently ranked among the nation’s Top 10, by U.S. News & World Report. The University of Houston is a member institution of the Texas Medical Center, which gives the Health Law & Policy Institute a formal link to the world’s largest complex for healthcare and biomedical innovation. On campus, the Institute directs curriculum, teaching, research, publications, and conference activities relating to health law and policy.

The field of health law has become increasingly complex, challenging, and oftentimes contentious. Over the years, the Institute’s distinguished faculty has advanced the understanding of health law issues and provided research and guidance for significant policy decisions affecting every element of health care. Scholarly concentrations run the spectrum of health care, one of the fastest growing areas of the economy. Topics of ongoing study range from biotechnology, genetics, and health care reform to issues of hospital finance, privacy, and bioethics.
