  • Course description

    With the increasing influence of European law in this area, employment has become increasingly complicated while also responding to rapid social and political change. The LLM in Employment Law is a two-year, part-time taught Master of Laws programme offering a high quality learning and teaching experience that will allow you to develop and deepen your understanding of these trends and developments.

    The programme is delivered through a blend of online distance learning delivery and five weekend face-to-face residential sessions held in the Guildford area near the University campus. During these residential weekends, tuition is provided by academics and practitioners offering a practical, hands-on approach to the subject. At these weekends you will have an opportunity to meet and engage with teaching staff and fellow students on some of the key issues of each module.
