Talitha Krenk, LL.M. ’18, and a current J.D. student at IU McKinney, recently started working as a case analyst in the Indiana Attorney General’s Office. Working in the medical licensing section, she is using the knowledge she gained through the Health Law, Policy, and Bioethics track of the Master of Laws program.
“My role is investigating and analyzing complaints against healthcare professionals,” Krenk said.
She’s an attorney in her native country, Brazil, and says she wanted to receive an LL.M. in this area of law after seeing the challenges many Americans face regarding healthcare.
“I became interested in pursuing this degree after witnessing problems in America, such as the opioid crisis, expensive medications, and gaps in healthcare coverage,” Krenk said. “Comparing those problems with the problems that I faced in my country drove me to focus my studies in this area.”
Krenk works under the supervision of several deputy attorneys general, seeking to discover whether healthcare professionals have committed any licensing violations. The section in which Krenk works has jurisdiction over some healthcare professionals regulated by Indiana Code, such as physicians, pharmacists, social workers, dentists, and nurses, she said.
She enrolled in IU McKinney’s J.D. program immediately after graduating with her Master of Laws degree in Spring 2018.
“The LL.M. was essential for my career,” Krenk said. “It opened many doors. The LL.M. in Health Law, Policy, and Bioethics is one of the best programs in this area of the United States. We have many opportunities of externships and networking. We also have excellent professors who are always willing to help us. Beyond all I learned during my studies, I also met people from all over the world. It was amazing to learn more about other cultures and countries.”
