SIU Law accepting applications for SIH/SIU Medical Legal Partnership LLM Fellowship

December 08, 2014

The SIU School of Law is accepting applications for the Southern Illinois Health Care/Southern Illinois University Medical Legal Partnership Master of Laws (LLM) Fellowship.

Through the generosity of Southern Illinois Healthcare (SIH), lawyers can apply to receive a Master of Laws degree (LLM) in Health Law and Policy from the Southern Illinois University School of Law, while working with Land of Lincoln Legal Assistance Foundation as a SIH/SIU Medical Legal Partnership LLM Fellow.

The Southern Illinois Medical Legal Partnership, founded in 2002 as one of the first in the nation, is a nationally award-winning rural collaboration, working with over 18 medical partners in 10 counties. The SIH/SIU MLP LLM Fellow will gain an in depth understanding of the policies and regulations that affect the health care industry, while receiving practical experience eliminating barriers to health care by integrating legal assistance into the medical setting.

The Fellowship is for one year, from the Fall 2015 semester through the Summer 2016 semester.
