Best school for Food and Drug law

Postby AZdruggist » Tue Apr 10, 2012 2:29 pm

I am entering my fourth and final year of pharmacy school. I am preparing applications for fall year 2013 entrance. Pharmacy law was my favorite class and I want to ultimately become a food (dietary supplements covered here) and drug lawyer-pharmacist. I will be interning at the FDA and CDC during the upcoming school year. Any suggestions on what the best law school is for food and drug law?

All the lawyers I've talked to say that specialty rankings don't matter and that you should go to the best school that accepts you.

Either an elite school (T14) or you should look at what region you want to practice in and go from there.

Emory has a interning program with the CDC but because of funding it got cut last year who knows if it will be back next year they took other students from GA as well, having said that you could go to any school use the placement office to land a CDC gig, just maybe harder
