Module overview

This module introduces you to four key themes of equality law in the employment context:

(1) The principles and evolution of equality law;

(2) The forms of discrimination;

(3) The protected grounds

(4) The challenges for enforcing equality law.

You will acquire a good understanding of the relevant law. You will also develop a critical perspective of law in its wider social, economic, political and historical context, and you will be trained to successfully apply the law to factual situations.

The module will be taught in a lively manner, promoting student engagement through problem-based learning, analysis of real-life situations and discussion of topical social and policy developments.
