Study type Taught


On this course you’ll examine in detail how the law facilitates or undermines social justice at the local, national and international levels.

Compulsory modules will explore the ways in which we define, access and attempt to enact justice. They engage with issues such as decolonisation in order to reorient discussions of justice from their colonial and racialised contexts.

You’ll also investigate the range and magnitude of inequalities around disability, gender, race and class – both domestically and globally – examining their ongoing implications for law, policy and practice.

Optional modules will allow you to tailor your course and explore issues such as disability, health justice and embodiment, social care law, and the building of just and resilient communities.

Throughout the course, you’ll develop advanced knowledge and transferrable skills such as understanding and solving problems, analysing, and communicating complex information, and working independently and as part of a team.

This will prepare you for a fruitful career in areas such as law, healthcare, social care, the third sector, activism, policy development, and local government.
