2. About the Masterclass

Why sign up for a Masterclass?

The Masterclass provides structured learning on Labor Law topics and lessons.

While self-study is laudable, Labor Law is a very technical field of law.

The Labor Code is just one of the more than 30 plus special labor laws.

Then, there are the implementing rules and regulations that are issued by the Department of Labor Employment (DOLE) and related agencies, such as the POEA, ECC, SSS, PhilHealth, Pag-IBIG, etc.

More importantly, Jurisprudence or Supreme Court Decisions on actual labor cases form part of the law of the land resulting in jurisprudential rules and guidelines.

The primary benefit of having a mentor is that he/she will simplify and synthesize all of the foregoing sources of labor law that the students can easily understand and apply.

Further, the mentor would be able to impart experience, knowledge, and skills that may not be readily apparent by simply reading the laws, regulations, and jurisprudence.
