International Labor Law: Cases and Materials on Workers' Rights in the Global Economy

West_amcasebook

Lance Compa (Cornell IR) gives us the heads us on his new international casebook with fellow members of the Labor Law Group, Jim Atleson (Buffalo), Kerry Rittich (Toronto), Calvin Sharpe (Case Western) and Marley Weiss (Maryland) entitled: International Labor Law: Cases and Materials on Workers' Rights in the Global Economy.

Lance writes:

We designed this book for labor and employment law teachers who want to expand their offerings and respond to keen student interest in globalization and its effects. We also mean it for teachers of human rights law, international law, international business law and related topics who would like to take up global labor issues . . . .

In many ways the book teaches itself, even for those whose primary experience is in domestic rather than international labor and employment law. The "Notes and Questions" interspersed throughout the text set up classroom discussions and debates. Likewise, "Internet Assignments" create a platform for student presentations in the class. These can also serve as examination and paper assignments.

We will also have a website at West that will have updated information. 

You can find that website here, as well as a copy of the table of contents here.

West Publishers will have it ready to ship February 14.
