If you are free between July 20 and July 22, 2011, St. John's University School of Law is hosting a wonderful conference: Worlds of Work: Employment Dispute Resolution Systems Across The Globe Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge University, July 20-22, 2011. There is still time to register and to submit papers for publication consideration in the law review.
I am a member of the Board of St. John's Law School Center for labor and employment law and though I am admittedly biased, I can tell you that I have gone to virtually every one of their conferences in the last 7 years and each one is better than the other.
The list of speakers include at least two former members of the NLRB, several arbitrators, the Director of the FMCS, several partners from major law firms and several well known labor law professors.
What is so wonderful about conferences sponsored by the Center of Labor and Employment Law, and this conference in particular, is that it brings together academics with practicing lawyers. The conference is not about theory; rather it is about real life issues facing labor and employment lawyers today.
Though I will not be able to join you at this conference (I was going to present a paper) due to a personal family emergency, I do hope that you would consider this conference if you have some time.
As an added bonus, registration includes 3 nights in the dorms at Cambridge University. Imagine that.
