Course Description

About this course

Are you looking to take your knowledge of mental health law to the next level? This PGCert course provides knowledge and skills that are directly relevant to the practical issues faced by lawyers, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, hospital managers, nurses and all those involved in the application of mental health and mental capacity law.

The course is the first of three stages of the LLM Mental Health Law. On completion, you’ll be ready to apply for the postgraduate diploma (PGDip) and then, once you have the diploma, for the LLM.

The distance learning mode offers a high level of flexibility, allowing you to undertake postgraduate study while also pursuing a career. Supported by the latest technology, you’ll enjoy being part of a collaborative learning community as you continue your professional development.
