The aim of this course is to provide an opportunity to examine the increasing influence and relevance of law (both international and national) to health and health care practice.

The course provides an opportunity to examine the development of health law as a distinct legal discipline. It looks at the scope of this developing area of law in terms of legal sources (domestic, regional and international) and asks whether, and how it has contributed to a changing perception of the contribution of law to health and health care practice.

The course will focus on:

  • The importance of legal frameworks as a context in which ethical decision making occurs.
  • The development of health law and the range of legal specialisms associated with it.
  • The contribution of law to approaches to disease prevention, health promotion and treatment.
  • Regional and international law relevant to health.
  • Current areas of controversy in the area of health law.
  • The contribution of, and the limits of law as a tool for promoting health, preventing disease and contributing to health care practice.

This course should be of interest to those working in the legal and health and social care professions.
