Program Overview

The MA in Advanced Social Care Law will help you develop a deeper understanding of a range of legal frameworks relating to the provision of adult and children's social care law. This understanding will be informed by a consideration of the latest research, practice and policy literature, as well as theoretical perspectives on social care provision. You will engage with complex legal issues and challenges through the lens of case law and statutes, to develop and enhance your critical and practical awareness.

The course is designed to allow you to tailor your own degree pathway based on your own professional, personal, or academic interests and expertise with one core module and a range of optional modules to choose from. You will be introduced to a range of laws and theoretical perspectives, and explore topics such as the core legal frameworks that underpin social care (such as the Care Act 2014, and the Children Act 1989), as well as having the option to enhance your knowledge in other areas of social care. For example, child or adult safeguarding, mental health law, mental capacity law, or the law relating to carers.

Applying a variety of perspectives, you will investigate law reform processes, academic research, policy documents, work practices, and professional guidance, to help evaluate the relationship between legal institutions and society. You will be able to demonstrate your knowledge to a range of audiences including specialists and non-specialists, showcasing your ability to communicate effectively and propose sound arguments with consideration of alternative views.
