Employment Law is one of the most dynamic and fast-growing areas of legal specialisation. The aim of this unique programme is to ground students in the key areas of employment law and practice and explore boundaries of the subject. The programme covers the central issues and elements in employment law today, such as EU employment law, family policy, discrimination and the impact of human rights law. It offers a chance to engage with the practice of employment law, drafting employment contracts and codes of practice.
Students undertake a range of compulsory and optional modules taught by the Law School. They may also choose modules worth up to 40 credits from other postgraduate courses offered by UEA. All students have their own Academic Adviser and assessment is by written assignment, examination, practical exercises and a dissertation.
The Law School 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. A continuous control process ensures that teaching quality continues to develop. Students have access to a number of quality-control channels including student feedback forms, debriefing meetings, and the Student Liaison Committee to help us monitor, evaluate and develop current practice.
This degree is well-suited to those working or intending to work in the area of employment law, whether as lawyers, human resources professionals, industrial relations specialists or advice workers. Law School graduates have progressed to a wide variety of successful careers, from private practice in local and international firms to government legal departments and international organisations, from universities to industry and commerce.
