Laura Evans, MA, JD
Assistant Clinical Professor
I teach Principles of Health-Care Administration, Health-Care Communications, Legal Environment of Health Care, Health-Care Marketing, and Health-Care Policy and Strategy in the Bachelors of Science in Health-Care Administration program. I also mentor students with their Signature Projects and fulfil other administrative duties.
Prior to teaching extensively for this program, I worked full-time as an attorney. My legal practice focused on Intellectual Property litigation where I represented clients in a variety of fields including medical device manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, and many hardware and software IT companies. I also have experience with licensing and transactions. Prior to my legal career, I worked in the fields of education and non-profit advocacy. My work experiences have provided me with expertise in communications, negotiation, strategy, marketing, and data analysis.
I speak English and Spanish and have traveled extensively.
