Employment Law in Practice
The course is the first of three stages of the LLM Employment Law in Practice. On completion, you'll be ready to apply for the postgraduate diploma (PGDip) and then, once you have the diploma, for the LLM.
For the PGCert you'll study three modules that have been developed in consultation with HR professionals and solicitors. Topics include employment relationships and how to terminate them as well as legal research and study skills at postgraduate level.
The distance learning mode offers a high level of flexibility, allowing you to undertake postgraduate study while also pursuing a career. Supported by the latest technology, you'll enjoy being part of a collaborative learning community as you continue your professional development.
A minimum of a 2:2 honours degree in Law, or an honours degree with law modules. Relevant professional qualifications or suitable experience will also be considered.
