The course combines lectures and case studies to help delegates:

  • Understand the basic law needed to handle a typical newly-qualified workload
  • Apply their legal knowledge to the practical realities of managing the client's needs. The employee's and employer's perspectives will be considered in all the sessions
  • Gain the confidence to act without excessive supervision and hand-holding

All sessions are conducted by highly respected employment law practitioners, who speak from the perspectives of substantial experience of representing both employers and employees.
