Summary

This distinctive LLM programme examines how to approach some of the greatest challenges and opportunities for law and policy as mechanisms to address health and wellbeing. It looks at questions including health (and wider social) inequalities, regulation of the body, reproductive justice, social and mental health and wellbeing, and the diverse roles of social and political institutions and emerging technologies (healthtech) in shaping health, law and society. Units on the programme approach these through multiple methods of critical engagement and contextual understanding. As well more doctrinal understanding of law and governance, these include analysis from critical, economic, ethical, gender, historical, philosophical, political, and regulatory perspectives.

The Health, Law, and Society LLM therefore goes beyond traditional courses on healthcare law to look at the relationships between law, governance, and health across society and governmental sectors. Students enjoy the opportunity to study wide-ranging questions concerning the impacts of law, regulation, policy and practice on health and wellbeing.

The attraction and advantage of studying for this LLM lies in both its subject coverage and the range of transferable skills it promotes. It would be of benefit in many different practical settings and careers. It is suitable for anyone working or planning a career in policy, healthcare management, health regulation (including at local authority level), healthcare and social care provision, legal practice, public health, advocacy, NGOs, special interest groups or legal/policy research.

You will be taught by academics who combine internationally recognised research profiles with wide experience within organisations responsible for policy advice and development, professional regulation, public engagement and understanding, and social advocacy. The programme includes core teaching in health law and governance, along with specialist units. Please visit our research centre web page for more information.

We have a large and vibrant international community and our LLM students benefit from small class sizes taught by world-renowned experts.
