Quinnipiac Law Facilities and Centers

Lecture halls alone don’t do a legal education justice. Spanning three floors, the Quinnipiac University School of Law offers all the resources you need to train for the legal profession. And our two centers of unique academic strength — one in health law, the other in dispute resolution — provide enriched resources for students interested in those important fields.

Academic Centers

We have deep expertise in two crucial areas of the profession: health law and dispute resolution. Both quickly evolving fields require in-depth knowledge, creativity and compassion.

Our two academic centers bring experts to campus to engage with students, design panel discussions and host conferences. They house extensive academic resources and sponsor special research.

Alumni who take advantage of the centers’ resources are redefining what a JD means in the workplace. They find meaningful work in hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, corporations, courthouses, government agencies and nonprofits. They bring their knowledge and skills to complex settings where collaboration is needed to get things done.

Navigating an alternative course

Our Center on Dispute Resolution focuses on integrating the theory and practice of dispute resolution. Founded in 1998 by Jennifer Gerarda Brown, Dean of the Law School, the center serves as an umbrella over extraordinary opportunities for both professionals and law students to engage in dialogue and attend special training.

The teachers in the center are nationally recognized scholars, skilled trainers and mentors. They include professors who lead mock mediation sessions in the classroom, faculty supervisors in our Civil Justice Clinic and judges, mediators and practicing attorneys who come to campus to engage with our students and share their professional expertise. With diverse backgrounds and viewpoints, they share a common purpose — to help our law students become more creative and compassionate resolvers of conflict.

Center for Health Law and Policy

Re-imagining the law as a healing profession

Health law has been an important focus at Quinnipiac long before it became a prominent topic of national discussion. Now the field is burgeoning, and we are uniquely positioned to prepare a generation of legal advocates and leaders.

The Center for Health Law and Policy serves as a focal point for the sharing and understanding of the various roles that legal and health professionals can play. The center sponsors panel discussions, lectures on health care law and conferences that address the most pressing health care-related issues of our time, such as gun violence, stem cell research, animal rights in medical testing and health care reform. Health law encompasses many domains of law and practice, including insurance, corporate mergers and acquisitions, access to justice, access to nutrition, human rights, conflict resolution, environmental protection and ethics and regulation. Our Center for Health Law and Policy offers students the broad perspectives they need to represent clients and resolve conflicts across the legal spectrum.

As a university that educates the trifecta of primary care providers — doctors, nurse practitioners and physician assistants — and other health professions all on the same campus, Quinnipiac is a perfect place for interdisciplinary learning and collaboration.
