Northumbria has an enviable reputation for its practical, innovative LLM programmes, which are accessible to a wide range of professionals.
For detailed information about the LLM in Mental Health Law Policy and Practice click here. Read on for basic course information.
The LLM in Mental Health Law Policy and Practice has been written and developed in close consultation with the Institute of Mental Health Act Practitioners (IMHAP) with the aim of providing in-depth training to IMHAP members as well as those who specifically work within the field of mental health administration. It combines an in-depth study of the law, policy and practice relevant to mental health with the flexibility of distance learning.
This innovative programme is open to a wide range of students. The programme will appeal to those students who have successfully completed the IMHAP certificate in Mental Health Law and who would like to progress to a Postgraduate Certificate, Diploma or Masters Degree in Mental Health Law Policy and Practice. It will also be of interest to administrators, social workers, hospital nursing staff and other health care personnel who are involved in the field of mental health allowing them to gain a postgraduate qualification whilst still pursuing their careers.
This programme is taught on a distance learning basis and takes 2.5 - 3 years to complete to masters level, depending on the route chosen and the availability of advanced standing. Each module is taught from a practical viewpoint, enabling students to both understand and apply the relevant law. Students are guided through each module by comprehensive study materials written by expert practitioners in each field.
The Law School is aware of a number of colleges in the UK (mainly in London) offering support programmes for students studying for our LLM Distance Learning degrees. These programmes of study have been designed as distance learning programmes with no attendance requirements therefore allowing students the opportunity to study for these awards from anywhere in the world. Increasingly, we are receiving enquiries in relation to “links” with these Colleges. The Law School does not operate any form of accreditation or validation scheme and has no collaboration, franchising, affiliation or similar type of agreement with any of these Colleges. Northumbria University is not the awarding body for any of these Colleges. If you require any clarification about this please email email@example.com
