Degree Overview

This unique LLM in Employment Law Practice and Human Resource Management will provide you with the opportunity to learn about employment law and practice from the socio-economic perspective of the legal framework applicable to corporate and business entities.

On this programme there will be cross-faculty teaching by staff from both the Business and Law Schools – and you’ll be taught by specialists in their respective fields.

Diverse, enriching and relevant optional modules range from modules on sustainability and fashion, intellectual property, cooperate governance, business and human rights, international tax law and international development, and economic justice.

Teaching will be underpinned by case studies and exposure to ‘live’ cases within the Law School Clinic. There will also be visits to the Employment Tribunal and Judge-lead talks and presentations.

A research and professional skills module is integrated in the course, as well as an option to take an introductory module on the principles of international law.

Programme structure

The programme has been divided into three clusters: the employment law cluster, business cluster and the corporate social responsibility cluster.

The core employment law cluster consists of modules covering all of the common and fundamental aspect of employment law and practice as encountered by those working, or wishing to work, in human resources management or a specialised employment law practice.

This cluster of modules includes coverage of individual employment relations, termination of employment, dispute resolution and how to conduct settlement negotiations, discrimination law and strategy, and whistleblowing.

The business cluster covers complementary subjects such as financial performance management, leadership and change management, advanced project management, corporate governance, and intellectual property law.

The programme further incorporates contemporary, cutting edge and topical modules under the corporate social responsibility (CSR) cluster. Example modules include corporate crime and business integrity, business and human right, and international tax law.
