Module leader: Linden Thomas
This module will give students an insight into the theory and practice of employment law relating to individual rights. Students will be introduced to fundamental employment law topics such as: unfair dismissal; discrimination; the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006; parental rights; and Employment Tribunal practice and procedure.
The module will draw upon clinical legal education models to introduce students to employment law and professional conduct issues in a simulated practice setting, thereby developing their legal practice skills. Throughout the module students will have a number of opportunities to hear from employment law practitioners and will be expected to observe a real Employment Tribunal Hearing.
