We were also first to market in Massachusetts when it came to offering a Health & Biomedical Law Concentration. The director of the concentration was Deputy General Counsel for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and has built long-standing institutional relationships that are useful connections for students who are seeking high-level externship opportunities.
The Trial & Appellate Advocacy and Legal Innovation & Technology concentrations are regulars in the rankings of best programs in the country. Intellectual Property is ranked #32 (US News 2019).
Concentrations are very similar to declaring a major. Each of the 6 practice areas have core curriculum and requirements to complete the program, receive a certificate, and get a notation in your transcript. While it’s not required to declare a concentration, specialization can be an advantage in today’s competitive job landscape.
