Health Law and Policy Project (HeLPP)

The Health Law and Policy Project (HeLPP) is a pro bono group at Penn Law that aims to provide opportunities for Penn Law students to gain practical experience in the field of health law and policy and to engage with the local and university communities. HeLPP’s projects vary in time commitments, partner organizations, and communities served.

Depending on a student’s engagement and interests, involvement can range from a one-time, 2-hour presentation at a local clinic with Know Your Rights (KYR),to a 7 hour/week commitment offering legal assistance to clients at community health centers with the Medical Legal Community Partnership (MLCP). These two projects focus on increasing health care access and quality to primarily underserved populations. Students interested in pursuing research opportunities can get involved with the Pennsylvania Health Law Project (PHLP), with commitment levels varying depending on the number of projects and volunteers.
