Dalhousie is taking the lead when it comes to raising a new generation of students trained in health law. Not only do we have one of the largest health law class offerings in Canada, we also offer lectures and courses to students in the Faculties of Medicine, Dentistry, and Health Professions at the undergraduate, graduate, and continuing education levels.


These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.
    Students interested in registering for the Health Law and Policy Specialization program must contact the Director of the program as early as possible and ideally at the start of second year.
