ATLANTA — Georgia State University College of Law’s Health Law program ranks No. 1 among the 2023-2024 Best Law Schools by U.S. News & World Report.
The Health Law program is administered by the college’s Center for Law, Health & Society. It offers several options for law students to explore the use of law and policy as a tool to improve health outcomes and reduce health disparities.
“We are honored that Georgia State’s excellent health law program has been recognized as No.1 in the country. It is a fitting tribute to our beloved colleague, Professor Emerita Charity Scott, who passed away this spring and whose vision created the Center for Law, Health & Society,” said Erin Fuse Brown, director of the Center for Law, Health & Society.
The college has also made progress in several other concentrations according to the Best Law Schools rankings. The Georgia State Law part-time program is now No. 12 in the country. The school rose nine points in the overall rankings, and for clinical training, it made a significant jump from No. 35 last year to No. 19.
The College of Law is also going strong with its trial advocacy program which is now ranked at No. 24.
“I am proud of the accomplishments that we have made at the College of Law, including implementing new experiential learning opportunities and innovative courses to educate and prepare our students for the practice of law and to positively impact the profession and the world,” said LaVonda N. Reed, dean of Georgia State University College of Law.
“We are focused on investing in the next generation of legal professionals and providing them with sound training and appropriate resources to make a difference,” she added.
