Collaboration with AZBio and University of Arizona Law Designed to Expand Arizona’s Life Science Regulatory Talent Base

The University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law and AZBio have joined forces to offer a 10% tuition discount to AZBio members for all online degrees and programs offered at the college.

Marc Miller, Dean at University of Arizona Law, describes this collaboration as “an opportunity for AZBio members to expand their knowledge and connections in Health Law & Policy through our four certificate programs, our Master’s in Legal Studies (MLS) degree, and our first-in-the US Bachelor’s in Law. We also welcome AZBio members to attend our free year-round professional development and networking events.”

Joan Koerber-Walker, president & CEO of AZBio, adds, “This collaboration reflects the mission of AZBio to make Arizona a place where bioscience and medtech organizations can grow and succeed. This connection with University of Arizona Law offers needed, high quality education at a cost-savings to our members. It is a critical step to help upskill the current and future life science workforce in Arizona.”

Certificate and course credits earned may be applied to University of Arizona Law’s Master of Legal Studies Health Law and Policy Concentration or Bachelor of Arts in Law.

AZBio members can tailor a program to suit their personal and professional needs from among the over 40 online Health Law & Policy courses. The Graduate Certificate in Regulatory Science may be of particular interest as it was designed in collaboration with global industry leaders at the Critical Path Institute, Roche Tissue Diagnostics, and the Drug Information Association, to offer real-world guidance around navigating the regulatory approval process to bring safe and effective medical products to market,” explains Tara Sklar, director of the Health Law & Policy Program at Arizona Law.
