This course is designed for students with a legal background who wish to pursue further study and research into legal topics of contemporary interest. Those completing the LLM will have become competent and independent minded, and be able to use these skills in the legal sector or elsewhere.

Why Study LLM in Contemporary Legal Studies with us?

This course offers you an excellent opportunity to obtain critical awareness and knowledge of current legal issues in a variety of legal areas.

The LLM will appeal to those wanting to enhance their prospects of a legal career plus those already qualified and working who want to improve their professional skills and status, and it is intended that continuing professional development (CPD) points will be available in these circumstances.

Our course includes optional modules on advanced advocacy skills; law in literature and film; employment law; discrimination law; issues in criminal law, justice and evidence; and personal injury and medical law.

What will I learn?

Initially you will study three compulsory modules, including Developing and Managing Research, Legal Theory in the Common Law, and The Conflict of Laws, which looks at issues in international law. You will then have a choice of specialised modules, which include, for example, optional modules on advanced advocacy skills, law in literature and film or contemporary issues in criminal law. Finally, you will complete a supervised dissertation on your chosen topic.

How will I be taught?

Our course is taught using lectures, seminars, workshops and presentations, and these will be supplemented by private study.
We deliver the course on a half day each week over two semesters of 12 weeks, with an induction in September. The teaching hours will normally be six hours per week.

How will I be assessed?

Assessment will be by written coursework, as well as group or individual interviews or presentations, and time-constrained assessments and exams.

Why Study Medicolegal Practice with us?

This course aims to inform and equip the practitioner with the necessary knowledge and skills to practise as an expert witness. A strong practical element of this course will seek to develop your report writing and courtroom skills.

If academic research is your interest, successful completion of the MSc will allow you to directly register onto PhD study and join our team of researchers at the Institute of Medicine.

What will I learn?

Our course is currently unique and has been specifically designed by doctors and lawyers to help educate and develop the expert witness to Master’s level.

How will I be taught?

The course is delivered using online and residential teaching to suit part-time study by senior professionals.

Teaching includes the use of online resources, lectures, case studies, seminars and workshops (including workshops on report writing and courtroom experience sessions), discussion groups, and supervision.

Our modules run in three-day blocks and are therefore suitable for working doctors and healthcare professionals. The course can be taken to achieve a Postgraduate Certificate or Master’s degree, and the Master’s involves a dissertation. Our aim is to encourage Master’s students towards publication if suitable.

Total contact hours for the whole course are 360 out of a total study time of 1,800 hours.

How will I be assessed?

Assessment is entirely through coursework, and involves writing essays and critically analysing and evaluating medicolegal practice, reports, case studies and law. You will be expected to reflect on roleplay activities and, for the dissertation, conduct research or perform a systematic review of the literature.
