Master of Laws in Health, Law and Society

22 May 2018

If you are interested in the relationships between health and law, and want a degree that gives you diverse career opportunities, then the University of Bristol Law School’s LLM in Health, Law, and Society provides the answer.

The LLM in Health, Law, and Society is a distinctive, master’s level degree that goes beyond traditional courses on healthcare law to look at the relationships between law, governance and health across society and governmental sectors.
Marking a clear evolution in the field of Law and Health, the programme, run by the University of Bristol Law School, focuses on how we should approach the greatest challenges and opportunities for law and policy as mechanisms to address health and well-being, looking across society at questions including reproductive justice, social and mental health and well-being, health inequalities, and the roles of social and political institutions in shaping health, law, and society.
Students will be tackling wide-ranging questions concerning the impacts of law, regulation, policy, and practice on health and well-being, in a subject that requires collaboration across public, private and third-sector organisations and considers personal rights and freedoms, social and political controls, and the wider environmental and social determinants of ill-health and the associated inequalities in opportunities and outcomes.
This is a great opportunity to develop a multi-faceted view of health and wellbeing that future employers will be looking for.
