Our Common Professional Examination (CPE) is accredited by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and the Bar Standards Board. Our Legal Practice Course (LPC) has received the highest possible SRA rating of ?Commendable Practice? in all areas. Our LLM awards are the acknowledged way to further legal expertise and hone research skills. Choose to complete the LLM Employment Law at the Staffordshire University Law School and you will be taught by renowned academics and benefit from the expertise that stems from our links with major legal practices. World-class, our Law School is purpose built, well-equipped and offers modern lecture theatres, an excellent Law Library with a Learning Resources Centre, mock courtroom with video facilities, Legal Practice rooms and study rooms. Flexible study Understanding that you may need to balance study around work, our LLM programme offers considerable flexibility in terms of time, content and outcome. You may attend to study the LLM Employment Law full-time (one morning and afternoon each week) or part-time (one morning or afternoon each week). As well as Law graduates, students with non-Law degrees and from non common Law jurisdictions may study on the LLM. Students may be credited for prior study. What it's about In recent years, Employment Law has burgeoned into one of the most dynamic and lucrative areas of legal practice. In this highly dynamic field, employment rules are subject to significant change, reflecting European-level policy decisions, which contribute to the development of UK Employment Law. The associated discipline of Discrimination Law is a highly contentious issue, which merits separate, but conjoined study, and again owes much to European-level decision making. This specific named route offers practitioners, or those who wish to pursue a career within the field, an opportunity to grasp and to master the central key concepts. What you do The LLM award (delivery by attendance) For a general LLM award, you may offer the required credits from any combination of modules available within the programme. The 15-credit single module Legal Research Methodology is compulsory if you do not have postgraduate research training. It is also a good introductory module if you are returning to study after a gap. In addition, if you have graduated in a subject other than Law, or are a Law graduate from a non common-Law jurisdiction, you will normally be required to take part, or all, of the single module. For the award of LLM, where a dissertation is required, that dissertation may be on any legal topic. Please note: not all modules may be offered in any single semester, or indeed in any single academic year, but every effort will be made to accommodate your wishes. LLM awards with Specific Designators To receive a specific named award, such as the LLM Employment Law, you must study at least 30 credits worth of taught modules in the designated subject area and your dissertation must also be in that area. Where there is the possibility of a number of named routes being available, you will be able to select the designation of your award when you submit your dissertation. DEGREE CLASSIFICATION Masters degrees are awarded in three classifications: pass, merit and distinction. Where Next The LLM Employment Law is particularly suited to legal practitioners looking for an alternative to the LLM Legal Practice, trade union advisors, Citizens Advice Bureau employees, Law students seeking a specialist route prior to commencing an LPCBVC, foreign practitioners looking to relocate to the UK and overseas-based practitioners looking to advise clients on UK Law. For a full range of career opportunities, please refer to the general LLM award.
