Course content

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 LL.M 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.
