PG Certificate Employment Law

Course Description


This course is taught by a Professor of Employment Law, aimed at anyone seeking a detailed introduction to the laws governing employment in the UK, but in particular, qualified lawyers wishing to work in the field of employment law or HR practitioners interested in acquiring a deeper and comprehensive understanding of employment law. The aim is to equip those participating with a clear and comprehensive technical understanding, remembering that employment law should be seen as part of the real world of work.


The course is made up of a series of ten evening seminars on Employment Law, including a full-day seminar on Unfair Dismissal and the Work of the Employment Tribunals, with an Employment Tribunal Judge, a full-day seminar on Resolving Employment Problems, with a senior member of ACAS. Students also produce a 10-15,000 word dissertation on an Employment Law topic of their choice. There is the added option of a credit point transfer to the UEA Master’s Degree, LLM Employment Law.


The course is taught by Professor of Employment Law (and Eversheds LLP Partner) Owen Warnock. The University of East Anglia Law School itself has a well-established reputation for excellence in its teaching standards and also for world class research. Its postgraduate student community rarely exceeds 100 each year, as the aim is to offer small group teaching, allowing students to benefit from the knowledge and experience of lecturers who are national and international leaders in their field.
