Working in health-related law ranges from formulating legal policy to helping clients with drug or alcohol-related legal issues, to researching and reforming the law and assisting clients with disputes with health service providers.
Some organisations, including the Second Steps program may require health-related qualifications such as diploma or degree in social work or psychology. For others, particularly research and policy, a law degree is enough.
