Employment Law (Part time) (PG Cert)
The Centre for Employment Law at the University of East Anglia Law School offers a programme of evening and full day seminars covering all aspects of individual Employment Law, leading to a Postgraduate Certificate in Employment Law.
Taught by Professor of Employment Law (and Eversheds LLP Partner) Owen Warnock, the course is designed to provide a thorough grounding in employment law for lawyers and HR practitioners. The aim is to equip those participating with a clear and comprehensive technical understanding, while at all times remembering that employment law should be seen as part of the real world of work.
This course is aimed at:
- Anyone seeking a detailed introduction to the laws governing employment in the UK, but in particular:
- Qualified lawyers wishing to work in the field of employment law
- HR practitioners interested in acquiring a deeper and comprehensive understanding of employment law
- A series of ten evening seminars on Employment Law.
- A full-day seminar on Unfair Dismissal and the Work of the Employment Tribunals, with an Employment Tribunal Judge
- A full-day seminar on Resolving Employment Problems, with a senior member of ACAS
- A 10-15,000-word Dissertation on an Employment Law topic of your choice, written under expert personal supervision
- Option of credit transfer to the new Masters Degree LLM Employment Law
Those not wishing to gain a formal qualification may attend the ten evening seminars and/or the full-day seminars. Delegates who sign up initially for the evening seminars may transfer onto the Postgraduate Certificate up to November.
