The programme is designed to enrich understanding of employment, work and equality law, investigating the various legal disciplines that regulate work relations. This is an opportunity to examine wide-ranging questions concerning the impact of law, regulation, policy and practice. Students will study core theoretical debates and relevant aspects of legal methods, engaging with a variety of institutions, practices, behaviours and ideas. The programme is taught by a world-leading group of labour lawyers with diverse methodological interests who are associated with the Bristol Centre for Law at Work. The programme consists of two parts. In the first part, there are two core compulsory units: Individual Employment Rights and Collective Labour Law. These will provide essential grounding in foundational legal issues affecting the field of work. Students will be investigating not only UK legal material but also international and regional legal standards and human rights norms. Students will explore diverse transnational activities and forms of market regulation. Students will also select two further units from range of specialist labour law and other options. These may include: International Law of Labour and Social Rights, Migration and Work and Philosophical Foundations of Labour and Employment Law. Alternatively, there may be other options students find of interest, such as human rights law, company law or international law. In the second part of the programme each student will write a dissertation of 12,000 words on a subject of their choice under the supervision of Bristol staff. This means that each student will have assistance in crafting their research and writing by a leading labour lawyer who is actively researching in the field.
