About Us


The Consortium

As law and science continue to overlap, lawyers, scientists and medical professionals must be able to navigate both worlds fluently. Founded with this vision in mind, the Consortium bridges two leading institutions by utilizing education, research, and clinical training and service.

Established in 2008, the Consortium has developed and supported collaborative educational and professional opportunities for students and faculty at UCSF and UC Hastings.



Founded in 1873, the University of California, San Francisco is the only UC campus devoted solely to health science. Its four schools (Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing and Pharmacy) consistently top the rankings in education, research, patient care and NIH funding support, with patients traveling from across the state, country and globe for care at UCSF’s medical centers.


UC Hastings

The University of California, Hastings College of the Law was founded in 1878 as the first law school in the University of California public university system. As a top-ranked law school, UC Hastings educates students in cutting-edge areas of the law and provides opportunities for students and practitioners to work together at the school and in the community. Hastings alumni are leaders in law, policy, government and business.
