The course consists of 4 units and covers four separate areas of private law:

2. Family Law
3. Property Law
4. Inheritance Law

1. Employment law deals with the rights and obligations of employers and employees before, during and at the termination of employment, the tribunal system in the UK, considers the various anti-discrimination legislation in the EU, England and Germany, and covers the terminology used in this area of law.

2. Family law covers the law relating to family matters and you will be examining this in the context of marriage, divorce, parental responsibility and the rights of children. You will examine the courts which have family law jurisdiction and the legislation which guides them, as well as relevant case law in this area.

3. Property law encompasses the laws concerning the acquisition, sharing and protection of valuable assets in England and Wales. You will look at this in the context of the four areas which fall into this field of law; land law, also known as ‘real property’, trust law, personal property and intellectual property, as well as learn and utilise topic specific terminology.

4. In inheritance law you will look at what happens to a person’s property upon that person’s death, what is required for a will to be valid, the different legal approaches when a person dies with/without leaving a will, and learn and use related terminology in this field of law. An examination and comparison of the relevant legislative instruments used in both England and Germany is also covered together with cross -boarder issues.
