Employment law diploma

Our employment law diploma is a joint initiative between BMA Law’s expert employment law team and the Centre for Professional Legal Studies (CPLS) at Russell Group University, Cardiff University, who accredit the programme. BMA Law’s expertise in the healthcare sector means that the course is specifically designed for GP practices and networks – so you can be sure you’re getting the most relevant information possible.

Studied over 9 months, you will learn about a wide range of employment law topics and how they apply in practice, and most importantly how your organisation can mitigate the main areas of risk.

Accessible and jargon-free, the course combines highly practical information, delivered by experienced employment lawyers, with the academic credibility of an accreditation by a prestigious law school.

The next programme will be running in 2017.
