About this Unit
This unit is designed to give students an introduction and overview of the interface between the disciplines of psychiatry and law. It examines how the empirical research and theories of psychiatry intersect with the application of legal principles and practices. As a result of successfully completing this unit, students should be able to translate personal and social issues concerning the study of mental illness into the practice of mental health law, and evaluate the efficacy of different perspectives in relation to contemporary debates about mental illness. Students should also demonstrate successful teamwork, involving the ability to participate in collaborative learning activities face-to-face as well as the development of independent learning skills.
