New course for September 2018This new course focuses on the legal aspects of health and safety legislation and industrial law.
Health and safety law is designed to protect the health, safety and welfare of the general public and defined sectors such as employees; no matter what industry you work in, there will be health and safety regulations to adhere to.
During the programme, you will evaluate the legislation and case law relating to health, safety and the environment. You will also have the opportunity to assess the current position of court remedies and sanctions in case of failure to comply with legal provisions.
A particular focus of the programme is the law of industry and its impact on many stakeholders. You will look at the legal duties of employers and others under health and safety law and industrial law and consider some of the crucial legal issues in health and safety law and industrial law, e.g. protection of whistle blowers, risks associated with specific hazards and hazardous activities.
The LLM programme also aims to equip participants with the necessary knowledge which will enable them to represent parties effectively before the courts or when pursuing or responding to an application before an Employment Tribunal.
You will be immersed in the more complex areas of business and commercial law looking at real-world applications that are not commonly available to students of traditional Law Schools. In the final part of the programme you will choose, as an alternative to a dissertation, either a live project, an internship or a placement, supported in each case by a research report.
The block delivery of the modules allows you flexibility in arranging your programme of study and means that you concentrate on one subject area at a time in order to gain maximum knowledge and understanding.
The programme is block delivered and there are several entry points throughout the year. Students will take the modules below in a sequence dependent on their start date.
The course is delivered in four blocks of intensive study periods. For each block, you study a single module for a 6-week period. Face-to-face teaching is delivered on campus for 6 hours each week. In addition, you will attend the taught element of the Business Innovation Programme each Wednesday afternoon during the 6-week blocks. During this period, you will also undertake independent study in your own time with online support through the University’s virtual learning environment, Blackboard.
Part time students study alternate modules (one module on, one module off) to complete their degree in two years.
