By far, one of the best labor conferences in the country-and I have been to many conferences-is the annual NYU Labor Conference. Details and registration material can be found by clicking Download LABOR CENTER -- 2013 NYU ANNUAL CONFERENCE ON LABOR It is run by Professor Sam Estreicher who is one of the most well known scholars in the country.
For the last several years this conference has been co-sponsored by St. John's Law School and the Cornell ILR School. It goes without saying that the topics are interesting-this year the focus is on the FLSA-and CLE credit is awarded.
So why is this conference different?? It is different because most substantive topic discussions involve academics and practicing lawyers. And it is not just any practing labor lawyer or any labor professor. This conference regularly attracks the most established lawyers and professors. Just take a glance at who is speaking this year. I save the material handed out because it is so useful.
So, if you have some time, you may want to consider attending this conference.
Note, although it is held over 2 days, you can choose to attend only one day. You also cannot beat the cocktail receiption.
