On June 2, 2010, the Honorable Wilma Liebman, Chairman of the NLRB, will speak at the Center’s official opening.On June 3-4, the Center will co-sponsor, with the Cornell University ILR School, NYU Law’s 63rd Annual Conference on Labor. Other events planned include:

One of the core purposes of the Center is to support our students through scholarships and internship opportunities. One such scholarship is The Boyd Scholarship (2010). It is funded through the generosity of Patrick Boyd ’00, senior partner of the Boyd Law Group. This scholarship supports the summer employment of a law student committed to employee rights. The first winner is:
