Law Society’s 2022 MOOC centres on employment law

The Law Society Diploma Centre will launch its free 2022 Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Tuesday, 31 May, on the highly-topical theme of  employment law and remote working.

A MOOC is a free online course that is open to all and specifically designed for large numbers to participate. Online recorded and streamed presentations, together with interactive discussion forums, will allow participants to engage directly with expert presenters.

This freely-available Law Society online course will run over a five-week period and will provide participants with a comprehensive guide to the key legal issues relating to remote working and interesting insights on the future of work.

Right to disconnect

Expert speakers will examine many topics including:

  • Right to request remote working,
  • Right to disconnect,
  • Health and safety considerations,
  • Professional wellbeing, and,
  • Impact of hybrid working on wider society.

The opening address will be delivered by Leo Varadkar (Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment) and solicitor Richard Grogan, while other employment law experts will also contribute.

All are welcome to join the MOOC, and participants may dip in and out of sessions, without completing the entire course.

Register now to participate in this freely-available educational resource.

18,000 participants to date

To date, the Diploma Centre’s MOOCs have attracted over 18,000 participants from over 88 countries since they first launched in 2014.
