On Tuesday Oct. 12, 2010 GW Law School is hosting an important conference on the status of unpaid student interns. The program can be downloaded by clicking Download Regulating Unpaid Internships
The conference will feature several important speakers, including two that I count as friends, David Gregory from St. John's Law School and Samuel Estreicher from NYU School of Law School. Significantly, this is not just an academic conference where legal theory will be presented. Several practing attorneys are speaking and the materials are both recent and practical.
The use and abuse of interns is not a new problem or a new legal issue. However, with the poor economy, more and more students, lawyers and others are working without charge with the hope of landing a job.
This conference should not be missed. I would have posted this earlier, but I just found out about it.
