Birmingham to Launch an LL.M. in Health, Bioethics and Law this Fall

Program can be pursued either on a full- or part-time basis

The UK's Birmingham Law School will launch a new LL.M. in Health, Bioethics and Law this fall.

The program takes an interdisciplinary approach to these complicated and evolving spheres of law. Compulsory modules explore the interface between human rights and health law, along with the emerging dilemmas in bioethics, which often cross national boundaries.

Program participants can supplement their LL.M. through a variety of electives, with modules covering topics ranging from "Philosophy and Mental Health" to "Criminal Law and Medicine."

The program can be completed in one year on a full-time basis, or two years on a part-time basis.

To apply for the program, interested candidates should have an honors degree in law or a degree in another discipline with a pass in the "Common Professional Examination."

Non-native English speakers will also have to demonstrate their English proficiency through an IELTS score of 7.0, with no less than 6.5 in any band.

The program is set to launch in September. For more information, please see Birmingham's LL.M. in Health, Bioethics and Law program webpage or the school's full profile on LLM GUIDE.
