Kent Law School launches LLM in Law and Health
Kent Law School at the University of Kent is launching a new Master of laws program in Law and Health in September 2020.
This new LLM program has been created with a focus on responses to the current pandemic. It is designed for people with a background in law as well as healthcare professionals, including those with training in medicine, nursing and midwifery.
The LLM in Law and Health will consider issues between health and law with a sustained focus on the issues raised by responding to Covid-19. It will explore how political, social and institutional contexts impact the regulation of health, examining the relationships between health, law and regulation.
Speaking about this topical new LLM, Professor Sally Sheldon, pathway convenor and a specialist in health care law and ethics, says, “Covid-19 has affected all of us in multiple ways and, as a society we are struggling with the acute legal issues it raises. How far is right to curtailing individual liberties to protect public health? How far should legal standards and regulatory controls be relaxed in light of the pandemic? What is the pandemic revealing about social inequalities in health and how law can address them? The Kent LLM offers a space for studying these issues in light of the broad principles of health law.”
The LLM in Law and Health and course can be studied full time over one year or part time over 15 months. The campus-based LLM course will have a second start date in January 2021.
