What is an LLM in Labor Law Studies? Labor law looks at the role the labor market, employment relations and social policy play on workers and businesses. Many programs are designed to look at labor laws from an international perspective, but some may focus on national issues. Students may expect to see certain courses throughout the curriculum, including general principles of labor law, collective labor law and dispute resolution, public law, comparative law relevance, and individual labor law. The curriculum may also include dissertations, lectures and projects.

This education prepares students to analyze the underlying principles of labor law. Participants may also get an opportunity to improve their negotiation, critical-thinking and time management skills. With this knowledge and skillset, students may be able to earn a higher salary or gain quicker promotions.

The cost of an LLM may vary based on the school and the country the school is in. Even the program type and duration can play a role in how much a student has to pay. To get an estimate, applicants must contact universities directly.

Graduates with an LLM in Labor Law Studies may join the workforce in international businesses, trade unions, employer organizations, consultancy firms, law firms, governmental organizations or universities. The exact careers available can vary from student to student. Some scholars have gone on to become labor lawyers, union consultants, mediators, discrimination advisors, labor law policymakers, judges, professors and officers at the department of labor.
