Senate Motion #2018-11


Motion Introduced by: Curriculum and Academic Programs Committee, Caroline Harrison, Chair

Date of First Reading:  September 25, 2017

Date of Second Reading: October 30, 2017

Title of Motion: Request from the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law – Dean’s Office – for the establishment of a graduate certificate- Health Law and Policy

Action Requested: This curricular proposal has received all college, school, unit and university administrative approvals, and is being presented to the Senate for review and voting decision.   

Rationale:The proposed Health Law and Policy Graduate Certificate at ASU’s College of Law will be a pivotal part of the health law careers for our law students. The certificate is geared toward students seeking to practice health or public health law in diverse employment settings. It is designed to immerse students in multiple areas of health law and policy, broadening their knowledge and skills in preparation for applied practice. As the health law market in Arizona and the U.S. continues to expand, new positions for these candidates who will be well-trained and versed in multifarious topics are emerging. While other schools and colleges within ASU focus on health, public health, and the delivery of care, the Health Law and Policy Graduate Certificate is the only one that specifically focuses on law and policy and is only available to law students.
