LL.M. in Labor & Employment Law

Issues and Practices of Labor and Employment Law

In the context of ever-evolving legislation and regulations, Labor and Employment law constitutes an important strategic challenge to businesses.

Today, lawyers in employment law cannot limit their skills to mere knowledge of the law.  Lawyers must also have the capacity to understand the issues and challenges facing companies, and to implement appropriate solutions.  Today, employment and labor law are tools that can be used to improve a company’s performance and to address issues regarding social responsibility : employee protection, the organization and negotiation of collective bargaining agreements, the sale of the company, the relationships with unions, the guaranty of individual liberties….

The students of the LLM Labor and Employment Law learn to understand the workings of a company’s operations and its field of activity, and to be attuned to the needs of the all of the actors involved, in order to develop a proactive attitude in the face of  the changing world of business.


This LLM program is taught in bilingual (French/English) course of study.

The program proposed by HEAD distinguishes itself by its pragmatic and strategic approach to employment law, as it relates to the issues faced by companies and their social responsibility, in order to address the challenges of the business world.
