Due to the snowstorm last week, the Symposium was unfortunately cancelled. The LEJer will be updated once the symposium is rescheduled.
The Journal’s 30th Anniversary Symposium is almost here!
The LEJer will be blogging and posting summaries of the panels from the beginning to the end of the symposium. There will be five posts in total: one post for each of the four panels & a summary of NLRB’s Chairman Mark Pearce’s keynote speech.
Attorneys & journal alumni should register to join the journal in this fantastic event. CLE credits will also be available! On behalf of the journal, we hope to see you all there!
Volume 30’s Technology Editor
On Friday, February 8, the Hofstra Labor & Employment Law Journal will be holding our annual Symposium from 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. at the Sentry Centers Midtown East Conference Center. This year’s Symposium will address changes in labor and employment law over the last 30 years and will include four 90-minute panel discussions of different substantive labor and employment law areas — employee benefits, traditional labor law, arbitration and mediation in labor and employment law, and employment discrimination. Continuing Legal Education credit will be offered to those in attendance. In addition, we are proud to announce that the event will feature a keynote address from current National Labor Relations Board Chairman Mark Gaston Pearce.
As Dean Eric J. Schmertz eloquently wrote in the foreword to the Hofstra Labor & Employment Journal’s first Volume, our principal purpose has always been “to seek and publish articles of excellence on labor law subjects from distinguished practitioners, management and union representatives, government officials and scholars.” While labor and employment law has changed greatly over the last 30 years, the Journal’s commitment to publishing the highest quality work in the field has never wavered. It is this commitment to excellence that has made, and continues to make, theHofstra Labor & Employment Law Journal one of the preeminent labor and employment law journals in the country.
We will also be holding an Alumni Reception, which will take place Thursday, February 7, from 6:30-9 p.m. at Dechert LLP’s New York office. Tickets for the Reception are $50 for alumni from Volumes 1-20 and $30 for alumni from Volumes 21-29.
The Journal’s quality reflects 30 years of hard work from our former and current editors and staff. At both our Alumni Reception and Symposium we wish to recognize our Journal’s achievements and the contributions of countless students and authors. You can register for these events by visiting law.hofstra.edu/LawEvents. We hope to see you at both events.
