The School of Law at the University of Edinburgh is pleased to announce the launch of a new series of online Professional courses in Employment Law due to launch this October.
The first course to take place is Managing Dismissals, Redundancies and Restructuring of the Workforce .
This new course comes at a time where given the current economic environment, it is an unfortunate, yet inevitable consequence that businesses will need to consider downsizing and rationalisation. Aimed at HR professionals, in-house legal advisers, employment relations advisers, line managers and Personnel consultants. Students will gain a detailed knowledge and understanding of important aspects of UK dismissal and redundancy law within a practical setting and the relevant legal issues applicable in the context of business transfers, outsourcing and restructuring.
The course will run for 10 weeks and will be delivered entirely online via our virtual learning environment, with students interacting with fellow students and tutors in online discussion.
