Course Summary

In this course you analyse, interpret, and apply the laws regulating the provision of healthcare about ethical perspectives.

This course applies our staff expertise in medical law and ethics to issues that you will encounter in the workplace. You will be taught by staff with healthcare experience as well as backgrounds in law. Within the LLM programme, each student can develop his or her own interests with the freedom to choose from a range of module options.

By completing this course, you will be able to...

  • Identify a critical awareness of the factors which shape medical law
  • Demonstrate a critical awareness of the factors which determine the degree of legal protection for medical negligence
  • Analyse the principal data protection laws, and critically evaluate responsibility for their enforcement
  • Undertake a critical awareness of the issues and problems raised using Judicial Review and more!


This module provides students with a grounding in the background law needed to fully understand the legal landscape in which medical law operates. This module has been designed to support both those with, and those without, a legal background. The assessments have been designed specifically to enable nonlawyer/legal background students to gain a firm grasp of legal writing, including syllogistic reasoning. Furthermore, this will ensure that lawyers/legal background students entering the course are refreshed in academic rigour, and stretched/challenged, in preparation to work as masters (FHEQ 7) level.
