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.
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.
Cardiff University is a Russell Group University.
The Russell Group is made up of 24 UK universities that have a focus on research.
