Employment Law: Practice & Skills

This one-day course is aimed at lawyers who wish to gain an understanding of the key principles of employment law.

The aim of the course is to allow the delegates to continue the development of their knowledge and understanding of employment law.  The teaching combines both trainer-led discussion and case studies focusing on key areas of employment law and the most common issues faced by employment lawyers in their practice.  The session is designed very much from the perspective of a practising lawyer.


It is of interest to trainee solicitors and recently qualified lawyers who are keen to expand their knowledge of a notoriously volatile area of legal practice and understand how to deal with issues that commonly arise.

Key Benefits

  • Gain a clear understanding of the sources of employment law (“contract” and “statute”);
  • Be able to identify potential risk areas/claims when dealing with claims and/or practice areas that touch on employment issues;
  • Gain a broad understanding of the principles underpinning “unfair dismissal” and “discrimination” (the most common claims) and how these claims are dealt with in practice;
  • Gain an understanding of the Employment Tribunal process and how to resolve employment disputes; and
  • Have a better idea of your current level of competence in the area of employment law and formulate a strategy for developing those skills where improvement is required.
