Yale Health Law and Policy Society (YHeLPS)
A Message from the Board:
On behalf of the Yale Health Law & Policy Society, welcome to Yale! We are incredibly lucky to have a huge variety of opportunities in health law at YLS, and YHeLPS serves as a central hub for the health law student community. We plan speaker events and conferences in collaboration with other groups, as well as more informal meet ups throughout the year. Some of the focuses for the upcoming year are projects related to the gun violence prevention, mental health and disability law, presidential candidates’ policy positions on healthcare, and global health. In your first semester, we hope you’ll take advantage of our great events and get to know some of the other students who are interested in health law. There will also be opportunities to get involved directly with event coordination and by joining the Yale Journal of Health Policy, Law & Ethics. Be on the lookout for more information on our welcome brunch held early in the semester!

Careers in Health Law
YHeLPS coordinates with the Career Development Office to support students who are interested in pursuing careers in health law. Events throughout the year highlight diverse opportunities for health-related summer internships and careers, and allow students to network with professionals who work in hospitals, firms, public interest organizations, and government offices.
Students with questions about careers in health law are encouraged to contact Christopher Lee, YHeLPS Career Development Chair. Chris is also happy to hear from alumni working in health-related professions who are interested in speaking at events or mentoring current students.
