The employment law course aims to give an understanding of how the law regulates employment relationships within the context of the British industrial relations system. Examples of potential topics of exploration in this module include, the development of Employment Law, incorporating sources and institutions of such. The relationship between employment law and other legal concepts will be discussed, notably in the discussion of the linkage between employment Law and human rights and the role of the ‘contract of employment’. Further substantive, practical areas of employment law will also be introduced, notably the law in respect of discipline and termination of employment, as well as redundancy and unfair dismissal.
To any student of law, the vastness of the field of law is vividly evident. There are numerous variations to the study of law, these may include: philosophical legal theory, common law, religious law, civil law, international law, criminal law, contract law, tort law, property law, trust law et cetera. After a certain amount of time spent in law school, every law student begins to see the consideration and the application of the comprehensive legal frameworks in the everyday, mundane and humdrum life events that would otherwise have seemed commonplace. An excellent idea, therefore, for law school dissertations is to take into consideration one such common event that often transpires in daily routines, and assess the legal principle that engender it.
