Social care law, including the law relating to disabled people, older people, people with mental health problems and children with special needs affects virtually every person in the UK at some time in their lives.
Law and policy in these areas account for over £40 billion expenditure per annum. It directs the employment of many hundreds of thousands of professionals and lay advocates in the statutory and independent sectors
as well as affecting the lives of over 6 million carers.
Despite the fundamental importance of the law in these fields, its study has been largely neglected by university Masters programmes. The LLM (Social Care Law) addresses this omission by focusing on community
care and mental health law, policy and practice in England and Wales.
