The National Jurist - Spring 2017 - 35
The program is open to law students
from across the country, as well as practitioners from around the world.
Health Law & Policy
Credits: Up to 4 (1 per course), Dates: June 12-17
There's no issue hotter than health care
right now, and American University is
the place to be this summer to get the
most up-to-date training on related
legal issues. Students can take any or all
of the four courses offered during the
week-long institute. They are: Law and
Policy of Health Insurance Reform; False
Claims Act in the Health Care Industry;
Pharmaceuticals and the Law; and Health
Care Business Transactions.
"We try to offer courses that really
aren't offered in students' traditional law
programs," Scielzo said. "We also attract
practitioners . . . because of the cuttingedge nature of our topics."
Each course is 13 to 14 classroom
hours, meaning students are often able to
combine the institute with a summer job
Scielzo said the institute stands out
because of its frequent guest lecturers, as
Western Michigan University
Cooley Law School
well as instructors who are practitioners
and experts in the field.
"You have students who are traditional
law students from Washington College of
Law. You've got law students from around
the country. Then, you've also got practitioners in the classroom mixing with the
professors, who themselves are experts
and practitioners," Scielzo said. "It gives it
a really real-world feel."
