Program Description:

This programme provides an opportunity to examine the structure and operation of the legal system in England and Wales, to look critically at the real life impact of law on practice within the health care system, and to do this in the context of an understanding of the ethical problems that arise in health care. Who should take this programme? Health care professionals seeking to study legal issues relevant to their work, and lawyers interested in health care provision, regulation and delivery will find this programme informative and useful. Anyone interested in approaching some of the hardest human decisions from an academic angle, including graduates from a relevant discipline and those going on to research, are also encouraged to apply. How will this course be studied? Students will study on a part-time basis. Part one modules are taught over two years, and dissertations are submitted on 15th October of the third year. Each module in part one involves attendance at a three or four day teaching conference followed by a one day seminar approximately a month later.
