LLM Health Law and Ethics
About the LLM Health Law and Ethics
This course addresses the growing interest in the interface of Medicine, Law and Ethics. With the increasing pressure on resource allocation within the National Health Service and current debates on an individual’s capacity to consent or refuse medical treatment, there is a growing need for qualified legal professionals with an understanding of Health Law.
This course examines general principles such as consent to treatment and medical ethics, together with more specialist areas of Health Law including the law relating to:
- organ transplants
- reproduction and the law
- mental health law
- medicines and pharmacy law
- employment and health.
You will gain an insight into the impact of the Human Rights Act 1998 on healthcare and the law, as well as exploring the link between ill health and poverty and the implications of this.
