    The University of Louisville’s Brandeis School of Law in September is launching an online certificate program to help health care workers hone their legal finesse and professional credentials. The Certificate in Health Law is a series of nine courses offered by Brandeis in collaboration with iLaw.



    Dr. Kaila Story, an associate professor of women’s and gender studies at UofL, has been chosen as one of the 2017 NBC Out #Pride30 innovators, change makers and rising stars. In honor of LGBTQ Pride Month, this inaugural list recognizes and celebrates lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people who are “making the community proud.”
