Boston is a major center for national and global health policy, and home to the Massachusetts Legislature, a frequent innovator in health care legislation. Boston offers ample opportunity for pursuing any health law interest, whether it be protection of participants in clinical trials, pharmaceutical regulation or cutting-edge legislation designed to cover the uninsured.
