Firstly, Collins, Ewing, and McColgan’s Labour Law provide one of the finest examples of a research-led teaching manual. Its users will undoubtedly emerge with an authoritative, rich, and critical understanding of English labour law. Meanwhile, they will fully appreciate the development of this multifaceted legal discipline in the broader European and international context. To sum up, “Labour law” is at its best.
