  • DeadlineStudy Details:

    LLM/PGDip 2 years by distance learning

Course Description

This degree will provide you with an understanding of UK and EU employment legislation and case law that you can directly apply to your career in HR or legal practice.

It is divided into four broad subject areas: individual employment relations; equality at work; termination of employment and individual dispute resolution; and key themes in employment law. Within these four areas you will critically analyse the scope and limitation of the law in relation to discrimination, gain a deeper understanding of the legal regulation of termination of employment, the role of collective bargaining and employee participation in the workplace and consider the effect of human rights and international labour law on the employment relationship. You will examine the law in-depth in its wider context to determine its effectiveness in the modern workplace, graduating with a comprehensive critical understanding of employment law relevant to your career.

Studying by distance learning allows you to fit your work around your existing employment and family commitments. You will be provided with support from our expert academic staff combined with the opportunity to meet tutors and colleagues face-to-face during our scheduled synchronous teaching events which take place on Fridays and Saturdays. To ensure flexibility, some synchronous teaching events will be delivered on Microsoft Teams, whilst others will be held in Leicester with an option to join on Microsoft Teams. During these synchronous teaching events you will have the opportunity to attend lectures, participate in case studies, discussions, role-play and other exercises.
