There are numerous textbooks available on the subject of labour law. Most of these (if not all) claim to be the authoritative and final word on the subject matter. It can therefore seem like an impossible task for labour law lecturers to choose an authoritative textbook to best suit the needs of their class. Often the decision as to what textbook is prescribed is made on the basis that a lecturer herself was prescribed a certain textbook as an undergraduate student or that the lecturer had already prescribed the textbook in the past, and is therefore familiar with the content and layout of the textbook. Consequently it may happen that a book is prescribed which is not best suited to graduate students and which does not strike an appropriate balance between being a comprehensive guide to labour law and student friendly. To the uninitiated the study of labour law, by virtue of its unique legal nature and the high number of legislative regulation therein, may seem an impossible task.
