Blog Description

This blog, supported by UCL Laws, is a forum for academics, practising lawyers and those engaged in labour law policies to provide expert analysis of labour law matters. It welcomes both commentaries on significant legal developments, and theoretical analyses of broader labour law issues, including book reviews.

The blog posts should contain critical analysis and reflection. It is a forum that responds quickly to labour law matters, in a way that may influence legal developments, but which also contains theoretical pieces that will engage a broad labour law audience, the general public, media, and policy-makers.

Our focus is principally on developments in the UK, but developments in the fields of EU law, European and international human rights, international labour law, and other national jurisdictions are also welcome insofar as they have a bearing on UK law.
