This innovative Masters Programme was developed in conjunction with Crutes Law Firm (now DWF) and following consultation with a wide range of human resources professionals. Focusing upon the issues that professionals need to know, it provides a unique opportunity for a wide range of practitioners to gain a postgraduate qualification in employment law whilst still pursuing their careers.

Whether you are a lawyer, human resources professional, personnel or industrial relations officer, or work in staff development or training, this programme will be relevant to you and your continuing professional development. The programme will develop a range of skills, which will enable all students to remain fully abreast of the latest legislative and case law developments. It will ensure that all students acquire in-depth knowledge and understanding of essential domestic and European employment law provisions, and informed and expert understanding of how the law operates in practice. Students will be provided with assistance enabling them to respond to complex practical, legal and ethical problems. Students will be encouraged to critically analyse the law and important legal issues they face in practice.


The Law School is aware of a number of colleges in the UK (mainly in London) offering support programmes for students studying for our LLM Distance Learning degrees. These programmes of study have been designed as distance learning programmes with no attendance requirements therefore allowing students the opportunity to study for these awards from anywhere in the world. Increasingly, we are receiving enquiries in relation to “links” with these Colleges. The Law School does not operate any form of accreditation or validation scheme and has no collaboration, franchising, affiliation or similar type of agreement with any of these Colleges. Northumbria University is not the awarding body for any of these Colleges. If you require any clarification about this please email
