Employment and Human Resource Law Concentration

Mastering human resource management and mitigating risk can be daunting as the legal landscape responds to new working conditions and the effects of the pandemic, and realigns with new regulations.

Adding a credential in Employment and Human Resource Law will compliment your first degree in law, differentiate you from your colleagues and give you the insights you need to navigate this emerging legal field.

From managing benefits and compensation to labor relations and employee rights your clients will benefit from your deeper understanding of human resource law.

Steve Sheppard Web 2021

There are three main shifts driving the evolution of human resource management and how it interacts with the law: the emergence of non-traditional work modalities, increased dependence on data analytics and artificial intelligence, and the shift from management practices based solely upon the employer perspective. Enhance your ability to navigate this changing field through our LL.M. program.
