Summary

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:

  • Broaden your career horizons with a valuable Master’s qualification in the specialist fields of your choosing

  • Learn professional skills to make you stand out to potential employers

  • Gain an up-to-date knowledge of law and practice in your chosen area and the impact of those developments on commercial and legal practice

  • Receive one-to-one tutor support and feedback on your work from a fully-qualified lawyer

  • Develop a portfolio demonstrating the law in practice

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 online 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.

Please note that, due to Home Office regulations, students who require a Tier 4 visa to study with us are not permitted to study online and can only choose face-to-face taught modules.
