LLM Health Law and Ethics

Course Description

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.

(Student Profile)

Marika Marisse Matusko

291.jpg I was encouraged to apply for an LLM by one of the NTU Professors in Law who I met on the NTU International Summer School in Strasbourg which was a great experience. I'm really enjoying the course because I'm specializing in an area of law which is of great interest to me. It's a course that is not just for law graduates, but for people from other backgrounds. For example, some of my classmates are lawyers but many come from other professional occupations such as doctors and clinicians.

I am really happy with the lecturers and the way they conduct the seminars as they become more of a discussion than a lesson. Before we go the seminar we do some preparation reading and then we discuss is with our classmates. This really allows us to think more about different views and opinions. I study part-time because I am also working full time. The main difference between doing the LLM part time and full time is there is more time to do your dissertation.

The best thing about Nottingham is the fact that it is affordable. There are nice places to see and we have a great student life. I go to the 'Viva La Fiesta' parties which are held by international students in Nottingham and there is a really good atmosphere. You meet people from all over the world.
