This distinctive LLM programme examines how to approach some of the greatest challenges and opportunities for law and policy as mechanisms to address health and wellbeing. It looks at questions including reproductive justice, social and mental health and wellbeing, health inequalities, and the diverse roles of social and political institutions in shaping health, law and society.

It therefore goes beyond traditional courses on healthcare law to look at the relationships between law, governance and health across society and governmental sectors. Students will enjoy the opportunity to study wide-ranging questions concerning the impacts of law, regulation, policy and practice on health and wellbeing.

The attraction and advantage of studying for this LLM lies in both its subject coverage and the range of transferable skills it promotes. It would be of benefit in many different practical settings and careers. It is suitable for anyone working or planning a career in policy, healthcare management, health regulation (including at local authority level), healthcare and social care provision, legal practice, public health, advocacy, NGOs, special interest groups or legal/policy research.

You will be taught by academics who combine internationally recognised research profiles with wide experience within organisations responsible for policy development, professional regulation and social advocacy. The programme includes core teaching in health law and governance, along with specialist units. Please visit our research centre web page for more information.

We have a large and vibrant international community and our LLM students benefit from small class sizes taught by world-renowned experts.

The LLM can be a starting point for careers in these fields, while also providing an appropriate programme of study for people already working in these areas.
