Course content

The programme content has been designed to address the burgeoning interest in the interface of medicine, law and ethics. With the increasing pressure on resource allocation within the Health Service and current debates on an individual's capacity to consent to or refuse treatment, there is a growing need for qualified legal professionals with an understanding of Health law.

Students examine general principles such as Consent to Treatment and Medical Ethics, together with more specialist areas such as the Law Relating to Organ Transplants, Reproduction and the Law, Mental Health Law, Medicines and Pharmacy Law, and Employment and Health.

The course will provide students with an insight into the impact of the Human Rights Act 1998 on health care and the law, as well as exploring the link between ill-health and poverty and the implications of this. As with other LLM subject areas, modules will be taught in comparison with and against a European context as a backdrop.
