Dr Wanjiru Njoya (Convenor)
Law of Contract
|Available via distance learning|
This module aims to introduce you to the law as it relates to: the rights and duties of individual employees in relation to their employer, and their trade union; and the legal context of the role of trade unions at work. Broader contexts, such as political history of legislation and case law, economic and social factors will also be considered.
It is a pre-requisite to have a working knowledge of the law of contract, normally through having taken the Level One Law of Contract module, or equivalent. For this reason it is not a module suitable for students entirely new to Law, although it may be appropriate for those who are studying other degrees (such as Flexible Combined honours) where contract law has been, or is, a component.
