The programme is designed to maximise flexibility in the timing as well as the content of your studies: you can join the course in September or January; you can study full-time or part-time.

Careers

Whatever you choose, our classes prepare you for a future where your knowledge and skills will truly make a difference. If you are a recent graduate, this course will assist you in securing your first role within a law or business environment, or prepare you for further academic study. In an increasingly competitive jobs market, practitioners equipped with both understanding of commercially relevant aspects of law and strong professional skills are highly sought after. The programme also provides the opportunity for lawyers in mid-career to acquire increasingly expected skills and knowledge while non-lawyers are assisted in the transition into specialist legal areas that complement their existing experience in business and commerce.

A Masters qualification is key to career advancement and professional confidence, and is a highly regarded asset in any professional or academic sector. This course will enhance your knowledge and ability, professional standing and employability. Several of the modules are accredited or recognised by professional bodies such as the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators and the Energy Institute.

Our LLM Employment Law and Practice degree provides in-depth, current knowledge and skills in employment and labour law.

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. It is the only UK Employment Law LLM to give students an optional ADR stream.

Course detail

If you are new to studying law, the Law for Employment module is there to help you learn key legal concepts and structures necessary for understanding and applying employment law. This allows those without a recent LLB to be in a position to tackle the more advanced employment law modules later in the course. At the same time, those who have a recent law degree, or who are legal practitioners, will benefit from the choice to refresh their memory, by taking this module, or take another optional mediation module.

The course structure allows not only for flexibility in when, during a week, you study but also what you actually study, with the taking of up to three optional modules, thereby allowing you to tailor the course to your interests and needs.

The course starts in September each year but students can also choose to join the course in January. Students that start in January simply slot into the course at the start of Semester 2. While it is preferable to start in September and complete the Law for Employment and Employment Contracts & Rights modules first, the modules are all able to be taken on a standalone basis; there is no prerequisite to take these modules before any others.
