Student doing research
Module description:

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.
