The Summer Scholars Program is offered by the Jaharis Health Law Institute and the Center for Intellectual Property & Information Technology. This Program offers 1L and 2L health law fellows or IP-focused students the opportunity to work at a diverse selection of firms, associations, organizations, and companies specializing in either health law or the intersection between health and intellectual property. Summer scholars will receive exceptional hands-on experience wherever they are placed as well as a $5,000 stipend for the summer. Previous placements have included positions at Sinai Health System, Robert H. Lurie Medical Research Center, the American Medical Association, and many more.
I was a Summer Scholar my 2L summer, which helped me apply concepts I had learned in class, network with other health law professionals, and obtain another health law related position during my 3L year. To this day, I keep in touch with my mentor from that experience and she has helped connect me with other attorneys that I may potentially work with after graduation. Being a Summer Scholar is a great opportunity and can help expand your network and help you obtain a post-graduate job in the health law field.
