Legal Aspects of Medical Practice

Cardiff University

Course Information


The legislation governing medicine and healthcare has become more complicated in recent years, and patients are becoming more mindful of their legal rights. This has far-reaching implications for care procedures as well as civil responsibility and compensation issues. Changes in the NHS’s system have also resulted in a host of significant legal issues.

The programme

Cardiff University’s LLM Legal Aspects of Medical Practice programme was established in 1987 with the aim of providing a thorough understanding of the legal principles that apply to, and the problems that concern, the practice and administration of healthcare, as new developments make a better understanding of the area increasingly important.

This part-time, online programme helps you to dig further into topics and do research in areas of medical law that concern you. The course:

– Covers a wide spectrum of healthcare law topics.
– Stimulates a critical approach to evaluation of current and proposed regulation and cultivates independent and original thought.
– Enables you to undertake in-depth research and demonstrate advanced knowledge in specific areas of law.
