About Legal Aspects of Medical Practice at Cardiff University

In recent years, the law relating to medicine and healthcare has become increasingly complex and patients are becoming more aware of their legal rights. This has significant consequences for medical practices and questions of legal liability and compensation.  Changes in the structure of the NHS are also giving rise to a number of important legal problems. 

Our LLM Legal Aspects of Medical Practice was established in 1987 and aims to provide a sound knowledge of the legal rules applicable to, and the issues surrounding, the practice and administration of healthcare, as further changes make a deeper understanding of the field ever more significant. 

This part-time, distance-learning course provides the opportunity to study topics in-depth and conduct research in areas of medical law of particular interest to you.  The programme:

  • 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.
