What is Health Law?

Health law is distinctive because it is focused on an entire industry rather than on a specific body of law. In contrast to other legal specializations that focus on one legal issue that involves a variety of different industries, attorneys practicing in the area of health law deal with a broad cross section of most areas of the law, including: medical malpractice, torts, public health, administrative, food and drug, insurance, licensure, corporate, transactional, antitrust, criminal, bioethics, intellectual property, tax,  labor, real estate, regulatory compliance, and risk management, among many others.
