Bioethics and Medical Law

Course Description

This programme is taught via block teaching and structured learning by the Law School and the Department of Politics, Philosophy and Religion (PPR) and is for those with an interest in medical ethics, and healthcare law, including medical students.

The programme introduces you to the fundamental analytical skills of moral philosophy and law and the principal ethical and legal issues arising within medical research and practice and how they are resolved. Issues include regulation of artificial reproduction; life and death decision making; obtaining of informed consent; appropriate use of genetic testing; and fair distribution of health care resources.

A student is awarded either an LLM or an MA degree dependent on the weighting of law and politics courses studied. A major factor will be the department responsible for the supervision of the final dissertation.

Core modules:
• Foundations of Bioethics
