Employment Law and Practice

The course provides in-depth, current knowledge and skills in employment and labour law. The course is focused on equipping you with the necessary skills and knowledge to be effective, highly functioning employment law specialists. The course content is designed to give you an in-depth view of relevant employment law, within the UK perspective, and develop your core legal and professional skills. The course is delivered fully online (except for 1 optional module, which requires attendance at an on campus workshop), and can be studied either full-time or on a part-time basis. It gives you flexibility in location and when, within a week, you study.
