Georgia State University College of Law has the best health law program in the country, according to the new 2022 U.S. News & World Report rankings.
Leslie Wolf, interim dean of the College of Law, attributes the school’s exceptional performance in health law to the breadth and depth of its health law faculty, who address the most important issues across the entire field of health law in their research and teaching.
Erin Fuse Brown, Catherine C. Henson Professor and Director of the Center for Law, Health & Society, said, “We’re thrilled that the College of Law earned the No. 1 health law ranking for the first time and has been in the top 10 for fifteen years. Since the center was founded in 2004, we have been dedicated to addressing today’s health law challenges through high quality educational programs, research and community engagement. Through their research, our faculty inform public debate and policy. Through their teaching and mentorship, they develop the future leaders in health law.”
Georgia State Law also ranks among the top law schools in other areas. The part-time program is ranked No. 17 overall. In specialty areas, Georgia State Law was recognized for trial advocacy at No. 24 and clinical training at No. 40. The college is home to award-winning Moot Court and Mock Trial teams as well as three on-campus clinics that provide legal services to underserved communities.
The college’s overall rank is No. 78, which is down from last year’s rank of 76 despite an increase in the overall score that determines rank.
“We offer students support from admission to bar passage with a dynamic, experiential-focused curriculum, access to a thriving legal community, and instruction by top-notch faculty,” Wolf said. “I’m confident that we are moving in the right direction.”
