Program Description

A glance at any newspaper or online news feed soon highlights great strength of feeling surrounding employment law. Pay equality, minimum wage, unfair dismissal, contract and agency workers, zero hours contracts and workers' rights are regular flash-points, especially in the political sphere. Government and non-government organisations, as well as private businesses, need skilled individuals who show a deep understanding of employment law and the complex issues it raises.

The programme enables students to specialise in subjects related to employment law, equipping them with comprehensive knowledge of the legal processes governing employment relationships and statutory rights in the UK, through the systematic and critical understanding of legal frameworks regulating employment contracts, recruitment, dismissal and discrimination in the work place.

You will deepen and broaden your knowledge of law as an academic subject; acquiring a systematic understanding of legal processes, methods and concepts, of the social and political context in which legal processes take place and of appropriate theoretical conceptions of law.

By maximising your academic potential and refining your problem-solving skills in a transnational context through the acquisition of systematic and critical understanding of complex legal, economic, cultural, ethical and political issues informing employment relationships and anti-discrimination regulations in the United Kingdom and Europe you will enhance your professional development and horizons.

The research and writing skills you gain will be transferable to a variety of professional sectors, including the legal profession, policymaking, corporate sector, governmental bodies or academia.
