    This Postgraduate programme provides students with the opportunity to critically analyse and evaluate the laws governing the employment relationship. Key areas of employment law are taught on this programme, but broader contextual issues, such as the political, social and economic influences affecting this field of study will also be covered.

    Reasons to choose Employment Law LLM degree

    The programme offers individuals the opportunity to enhance their future career and professional development by providing specialist knowledge of employment law. It will be of benefit to practitioners in HR, and to lawyers and non-lawyers who wish to specialise in this stimulating and interesting area of law.

    The LLM in Employment Law has been designed to provide flexibility to enable those who are working or have other constraints on their time to choose the number of modules they study to suit their personal commitments.

    Course content

    Students will be able to take a step-by-step approach to their studies, by firstly taking sufficient modules for a Postgraduate Certificate, and then upgrading with further modules for a Postgraduate Diploma. Successful completion of this stage enables students to proceed to a research-based dissertation and achieve the LLM in Employment Law.

    For the LLM award in Employment Law, students will study the following double mandatory modules:

        * Rights in Employment
        * Equality in Employment
        * Termination of Employment

    Together with single modules in Research Skills and Research Design, students will study two further single modules from a selection of law and business modules. Students subsequently complete a research-based dissertation specialising in an area of personal interest relevant to the programme.

    Teaching, learning and assessment

    The modules are taught via workshops, lectures and seminars.  Assessment takes the form of coursework, short class-based examinations and presentation of workshop papers.

    Course structure

    Modules are taught in ten- to twelve-week terms from:

        * September to December
        * January to April
        * April to May

    This is followed by the presentation of a dissertation.
