About

The Law School at Ulster University has joined forces with Legal Island and the Labour Relations Agency to create what we think will be the best employment law course in the UK.

The course includes 24 employment law and compliance lectures from the cream of Northern Ireland’s employment law expert practitioners and on-site visits and role play exercises with LRA staff and the President of Industrial Tribunals and the Fair Employment Tribunal.

Modules

Courses are continually reviewed to take advantage of new teaching approaches and developments in research, industry and the professions. Please be aware that modules may change for your year of entry. The exact modules available and their order may vary depending on course updates, staff availability, timetabling and student demand. 

Year one:

Employment Law

The importance of the employment relationship between employers, employees, unions and other statutory bodies and agencies is such that a thorough knowledge of both the context and the substantive law is necessary for those involved in this area in any capacity. The module attempts to provide the basis for this knowledge and to put students in the position where they may not only have an understanding of the law both conceptually and substantively, but also be in a position to use that knowledge in the solution of problems.

Alternative Dispute Resolution

Methods of ADR are increasingly being used within the legal system and advocated as a means of removing cases from overburdened courts. In appropriate cases they can provide an alternative to legal adjudication and can be used as a means of achieving satisfactory solutions to disputes. The purpose of this module is to introduce students to the processes of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) and its relationship to law. The course will cover processes such as arbitration, mediation and conciliation and will provide students with a foundational knowledge of ADR which can then be developed in their professional practice. The module will comprise both theoretical and skills based elements. Students will consider the rationale and ethics of ADR before being introduced to some of the practical skills used in these processes. The study and practice of ADR will be undertaken in the context of a range of legal subject areas, including commercial law, family law and employment law.

Tribunal Representation

This module aims through a combination of lectures and practical exercises to enable trainees to further develop their own professional practice in relation to employment and social security matters. The module aims to develop a student's ability to apply and further develop the knowledge and practical skills gained in prior and concurrent modules. The module will encourage discussion of rationales and consequences of each available course of action in any given scenario, and students will be encouraged to critique solutions to any issues identified as arising from their choice(s). It is anticipated that students will examine the impact of the rules and procedures involved and their tactical application in practice with a view to developing their own individual work practice.

Year 2 :

Employment Compliance and Development

Whether you are a lawyer, human resources professional, personnel or industrial relations officer, this module will develop a range of skills, which will enable all students to remain fully abreast of the latest legislative and case law developments in employment compliance. It will ensure that all students acquire in-depth knowledge and understanding of how employment compliance issues operates in practice. Students will be provided with assistance enabling them to respond to complex practical, legal and ethical problems. Students will be encouraged to critically analyse the law and important legal issues they face in practice.

Career options

Those who undertake this course are likely to use this qualification for career development and progression purposes within their own organisations.

Please note, optional module choices will be grouped and will run in designated blocks, meaning some module combinations will not be possible.

Keele Management School has been delivering high quality part-time distance-learning programmes for over 20 years. We continue to offer lifelong learning opportunities to trade unionists, managers, and anyone else involved, or interested, in Industrial Relations and Human Resource Management (HRM).

Staff are active teachers and researchers within their specialist fields and are experienced adult educators. Most of our students have a practical knowledge of Industrial Relations and Human Resource Management.

Part-time programmes take 18 months for the PgD, and a further 6 months for the MA. Direct enrolment on to the MA normally requires a second class honours degree. However, applicants with professional qualifications or equivalent experience may also be accepted, subject to interview.

See the website https://www.keele.ac.uk/pgtcourses/industrialrelationsandemploymentlaw/

Programme Aims

Our part-time programmes are suitable for those in full-time employment and are flexible enough to allow completion by students from anywhere in the UK.

Our programmes explore key issues such as:

- Theoretical approaches to the employment relationship

- Collective bargaining and trade union organisation

- Performance and reward management systems

- HRM and approaches to labour management

Programme Content

The Masters programmes are delivered through a taught part consisting of eight 15 credit modules (totaling 120 credits) and one 60 credit dissertation. Students who successfully complete only the taught modules will be awarded a Postgraduate Diploma. The part-time programmes start in September each year and are designed to be taken over eighteen months (Postgraduate Diploma) or two years (MA).

The programmes are designed to be both practicable and accessible to those in full-time employment who want to build on their own experience to gain an academic qualification. Our part-time Masters programmes are therefore available by distance learning with study periods at Keele, and extensive learning support. They are flexible enough to allow completion by students anywhere in the UK, Ireland, or Europe, and from any occupation.

- Dissertation

The dissertation is 15,000-20,000 words. Where applicable, students are encouraged to undertake research connected with their current or previous industrial relations or HRM experience. Students are required to produce a written research proposal, material is supplied on research methods, and all students are allocated a supervisor.

Teaching & Assessment

- Teaching delivery:

The Postgraduate Diploma (PgD) programme is delivered through six study periods at Keele over both years of study supported by distance learning study packs, electronic resources and a dedicated personal tutor for the core part of the course. Each student does eight essay assignments.

Students who register for the MA (or progress from the PgD to the MA) attend two further study periods at Keele in year 2 and write a dissertation of between 12,000 and 15,000 words. Where applicable, students are encouraged to undertake research connected with their current or previous industrial relations or HRM experience. Material is supplied on research methods, and all students are allocated a supervisor.

Study periods are held at Keele in September, January, April and June of each academic year.

- Assessment:

Each module on the taught part of the programme is assessed through an essay, with a pass mark of 50%. For those taking the Masters course there is a research methods essay and a dissertation of 15,000-20,000 words.

Additional Costs

Apart from additional costs for text books, inter-library loans and potential overdue library fines, we do not anticipate any additional costs for this postgraduate course.

The LLB degree is a postgraduate law degree offering distinct pathway to two different types of candidates. 

For students who have already been awarded a law degree the LLB degree offers an opportunity to expand their portfolio of legal knowledge across a wider area of law in preparation for specific practice or for further study. The one year full-time course includes a wide choice of modules which would allow you to choose a combination that best suits your interests. In particular, it offers you an opportunity to study additional fields of law, such as medical law, environmental law or human rights law, which may not have been available to you at undergraduate level. 

For students who are graduates from a non-law discipline the LLB is a two-year postgraduate law degree which offers you sufficient core and optional law modules to undertake, should you wish, professional legal training at the end of the degree. It is designed to ensure that graduates will have a strong legal training at the end of their two years study (full time) along with suitable critical understanding of core legal issues. Beyond preparing you for legal professional qualifications, the LLB is also suitable for students who wish to pursue a career in a variety of areas such as business, journalism, the civil service/government and human rights.

The LLB offers alternative pathways to two different types of candidates.

It offers an opportunity to Law Graduates to further develop and deepen both their knowledge and skills base. As a student with substantial legal knowledge already, you will be required to take 60 credits during your degree. Only Law of Property is compulsory leaving you with 50 elective credits. However, if you have already studied Property Law, or an equivalent module, you will be free to take the full 60 credits as electives. In addition, you may also seek to study up to 10 credits of LLM modules; permission of the Programme Director and relevant LLM Module coordinator will be required.

As a law graduate, if you choose to study for the LLB you will have the opportunity to widen and/deepen your legal knowledge into areas such as:

  • Commercial Law
  • Corporate and Financial Services Law
  • Consumer Law
  • Immigration and Refugee Law
  • Human Rights Law
  • Welfare Law
  • Medical Law
  • Employment Law 
  • Environmental Law 

For non-law graduates, the LLB offers an opportunity to convert to a career in law. As a result the two year LLB places an emphasis on developing not just legal knowledge but also your skills base. You will be required to take 60 credits in each academic year, which will include a combination of compulsory and elective modules and a skills module.   

While we recognise our primary responsibility is to provide legal knowledge, we also aim to ensure that you develop advocacy skills, experience team work and gain expertise in legal research, as well as gaining a range of transferable skills.  

As a non-law graduate, if you choose to study for the LLB you will take core modules which are the foundation topics required for the professional exams – FE1s and Kings Inn exams. These include 

  • Criminal Law
  • Constitutional Law
  • Contract Law
  • EU Law

In addition you will also have options which would allow you to study subjects such as 

  • Human Rights Law
  • Employment Law
  • Environmental Law 
  • Corporate and Financial Services Law
  • Commercial Law

Please visit the School of Law website here  for up to date information on the programme. 

Programme regulations are available in the College Calendar.     

Please see the Book of Modules for a more detailed description of modules.

Why choose this course

The LLB is a postgraduate law degree designed for law graduates seeking to deepen their knowledge of the law, professionals working in the legal area who would like to improve their skills and knowledge, and non-law graduates who are thinking of a career in law or a related area. The programme is tailored to fit the needs of a diverse range of students.
