The Medical Law MA course focuses on the legal questions raised in the context of medicine. These include debates about assisted reproduction, abortion, assisted suicide and euthanasia, psychiatric ethics and mental health law, organ donation and the allocation of scarce resources. The course is supported by the UK’s first Centre of Medical Law and Ethics. This course is intended for medical/legal professionals, graduates of a relevant discipline, those going on to research and for anyone wanting to think about and discuss some of the hardest human decisions. It aims to study the methods of reasoning and analysis in law and to examine selected areas of health care and medical practice from a further perspective of medical law.
