Textbook on employment law authored by Sintons’ partner
Lawyers and paralegals studying for a professional qualification are learning about employment law using a textbook authored by one of Sintons’ specialist lawyers.
Employment Law and Practice by Max Winthrop is one of the recommended textbooks for courses delivered by CILEX, the professional association and governing body for over 21,000 Chartered Legal Executive Lawyers, other legal practitioners and paralegals.
The book covers topics such as employment status, discrimination, family friendly rights, termination and unfair dismissal, and also examines the future of employment law in England and Wales.
The CILEX description of the book explains that: “Employment Law and Practice is the recommended textbook for the CILEX Professional Stage Employment Law and Practice Module, but it will also provide invaluable guidance for law students and junior employment lawyers who are seeking to improve their knowledge and practical skills in this area.”
Max, who has also lectured in employment law at Durham and Northumbria Universities, commented, “CILEX were looking to update their existing texts and asked me to produce this guide to employment law.
“Sintons places great value on supporting the next generation of legal professionals and now this book will play a part in helping hundreds more CILEX students gain an in-depth understanding of this specialist area.”
CILEX has more than 6,000 current students and offers qualifications from foundation level, suitable for those who are new to studying law, through to its advanced and professional qualifications which equip law graduates and practising professionals with specialist knowledge in areas including employment law.
Copies of Employment Law and Practice are available from CILEX.
