I finished my grading early this semester so I could attend the ABA International Labor and Employment Law Committee meeting this week in Paris. Marley Weiss (Maryland) and Richard Carlson (South Texas) were among the attendees. One of the best presentations of the conference was on labor/employment issues in a globalized airline industry.
This is a great conference to attend, not only for the presentations, but for the networking opportunities. More than half the attendees are non-Americans, with a heavy dose of Europeans. The Committee leaders are exceptionally welcoming of new members, and there are plenty of writing and speaking opportunities. Plus, the Committee meets in places that are not half bad to visit. Next year's meeting will be in Rome.
If you're interested in getting involved on this Committee, drop me an email.
