The Quinnipiac University School of Law offers a juris doctor (JD) degree, a joint JD/MBA degree, an LLM in health law and a certificate program in health care compliance at its facility located on Mount Carmel Campus. In Fall 2014, the law school will relocate to the 104-acre North Haven Campus, a graduate-centered campus currently home to the schools of Health Sciences, Medicine, Nursing, and Education, as well as the master of social work program.
Location: Currently, we are located in Hamden, Conn., but beginning in Fall 2014, the law center will move to the University's North Haven, Conn., campus which is uniquely situated near New York, Boston, Hartford and New Haven, at the heart of one of the largest concentrations of private law firms, corporate headquarters, and financial institutions in the country.
