Course Summary

Course Details
The LLM Mental Health Law will provide you with the opportunity to explore issues surrounding mental health laws and regulations. You will examine the availability of services, regulation of mental health care providers and the relationship between society and people who live with mental disabilities.

When you study the LLM Mental Health Law with us you will:

  • Be taught by subject matter experts, former and current practitioners and research and teaching focused academics
  • Focus on legal practice, not just theory
  • Benefit from strategic partnerships with firms, regulators and accreditation bodies
  • Learn about Legal Technology by selecting to study modules in legal technology
  • Improve your employability by gaining important transferable skills and mapping your career with our careers team

The award-linked module for this programme (Mental Health Law) will cover areas such as the availability of services, regulation of mental health care providers and the relationship between society and people who live with mental disabilities. The aim of this module is to put mental health law into context, enabling you to learn how to apply complex theoretical concepts to real world client situations.

In addition to a general induction to the programme, there is a two-week induction covering the Key Principles of the English Legal System. This is compulsory for non-law students, but also open to students wanting a refresher in the fundamentals of the law of England and Wales. This would be useful for any student who has taken a considerable break from legal education.

To help prepare you for your dissertation you’ll study a range of compulsory and further optional Research Methods Training sessions.

Assessment

Modules are assessed by a three hour unseen written examination or 4,500 word coursework assignment.

Attendance at one of our UK campuses (or an approved overseas centre by prior arrangement) is required for all examinations, including for online study.

The default campus location for online study is London.
