This prize is awarded to the third-year student at the Schulich School of Law graduating with the Health Law and Policy Specialization Certificate having the highest grade point average in the classes counted towards the specialization. It includes an $1,100 award. The award is to honour Dr Robert Elgie, inaugural Director of the Dalhousie Health Law Institute. His interdisciplinary expertise in medicine and law, and dedication to public service, laid the foundation upon which the Institute was shaped. The specialization program resonates with Dr Elgie's commitment to fostering excellence in the health law and policy field. 

Rozovsky Health Law and Policy Paper Prize

This annual prize is to be awarded to a student at the Schulich School of Law who writes the best research paper on a health law and policy topic in the course of an academic year. It includes a $500 award. The award is to honour the visionary role that Lorne and Fay Rozovsky played in founding Dalhousie's Health Law Institute and establishing research paper based courses in health law at the law school, as well as their life-long contributions to research and scholarship in health law and policy in Canada and abroad. To qualify for consideration for the prize, the paper must be nominated by a professor, and must be written for a course which qualifies for the Health Law and Policy Specialization Certificate.  This includes papers written in non-health law courses which were approved as counting towards the Certificate.
