Graduate opportunities

The specialisation has been developed specifically to meet the needs of two groups: those with degrees in non-legal disciplines and those with law degrees who wish to specialise in employment and industrial law. The interdisciplinary nature of the specialisation has made it highly attractive for candidates whose professional life draws together both law and practice in the field of industrial relations.
