Do you want to develop deeper knowledge in health law, policy and ethics to supplement your career or studies? Or perhaps see if a career or studies in this field is right for you? Our Summer Institute is a one-week online intensive program for professionals and university students offering an immersion in the theory and practice of health law. In 2021, students will learn to identify and analyze the legal, policy and ethical implications of the COVID-19 pandemic.
No prior experience or legal training is required. The Summer Institute is for people interested in learning more about the legal ramifications of COVID-19. Students come from diverse professional backgrounds, but our program is designed to be most useful to professionals with a health background and prospective law students. Please note class size is limited, and we encourage you to apply promptly.
The program runs full-time over five days and encompasses 20 hours of seminars and workshops and 10 hours of group discussion. You’ll join live lectures with breakout discussions, participate in Q&A, and have direct access to some of the leading experts in the field. You can expect interactive seminars designed to facilitate peer learning, interaction, as well as opportunities to network with fellow students. The sessions will be held through Zoom, supplemented with the Teachable platform.
The Institute is for people interested in learning more about the legal ramifications of COVID-19. Selected participants will include both students and professionals. Please note the Institute may not be a good fit for you if you have already completed legal studies. If uncertain, don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All sessions will be held through Zoom. As such, you will need a device with a microphone, camera, and internet connection. For system requirements for Zoom, please see here. The sessions will also be recorded and made available exclusively to you for 12 months on Teachable, which has similar requirements.
You do not. However, we strongly recommend that you do. We are purposely holding live sessions and keeping our cohort small to allow for rich direct interaction between instructors and students. So, while the sessions will be recorded and available to you asynchronously, you should attempt to attend them live.
All sessions will be in English.
