UNIVERSITY OF PETROLEUM & ENERGY STUDIES College of Legal Studies, Dehradun COURSE PLAN

A. LEVEL OF KNOWLEDGE REQUIRED Basic knowledge of Labour Law-I is required.

B. OBJECTIVES With the advent of 21st century, the role of workman in the growth of the economy is indispensable. The relationship between the employer and the employee/labour is that of trust and mutual understanding. The jurisprudence in this regard has developed not only from the enactment of several welfare and regulatory statutes but also from various judgments which have broadened the outlook of law on this quintessential factor of production. The need has often been expressed to develop the socio-legal and socio-economic aspect of labour jurisprudence. The intersection of labour with the industry, economy, society politics and human rights has often been highlighted by courts and must be observed and discussed by the students in order to gain a better insight of the development, arising conflicts (present and future) and science of labour law. This course will equip and prepare the students for their role in the petroleum and energy industry as not only a legal officer in the sector but also as a mediator/ link between the management and labour to harmonise their relations and achieve ideal conditions of work for both.

C. MODE OF INSTRUCTION The instructor intends to use a combination of lecture method, case study method and problem solving method to interact and teach the students. The instructor requires students to read relevant instructional materials as required from time to time. These materials will range from book readings, articles, newspaper articles, case texts etc. Use of multimedia will be encouraged and interactive technology will be used.
