From Ruben Garcia (UNLV) and Ann McGinley (UNLV), co-organizers of the Eight Annual Colloquium:
The Eighth Annual Colloquium on Current Scholarship in Labor and Employment Law will take place at the Boyd School of Law, University of Nevada Las Vegas, on Sept. 27-28. Monday July 15 is the deadline to submit an abstract for presentation!
Once you register here, the system will send you a confirmation e-mail with a username and password to upload your abstract here.
We are excited to welcome you to Las Vegas, a city that is a true laboratory for the 21st Century workplace. On Friday September 27 will be a special lunch panel on the 40th Anniversary of Title VII and a special dinner event that evening at the Culinary Workers Union Local 226 Hall. The Colloquium continues Saturday September 28 with the lunchtime presentation of the Paul Steven Miller Scholarship Award. The Colloquium will end by mid-afternoon on Saturday.
Title VII Symposium
A special part of the colloquium this year is an embedded symposium on Title VII at 50 Years. We are having a special lunch panel that will discuss Title VII issues on Friday, September 27. There will also be other panels on Title VII which will be part of the symposium. If you are writing on a Title VII issue, we would love to have you submit a paper for the symposium. The symposium will be published by the Nevada Law Journal in the Spring of 2014. Colloquium attendees have publication priority in the Title VII symposium issue. If you are interested in getting the priority treatment, submit your paper for the Title VII symposium by August 15. Submit the paper by visiting here.
If your paper is not ready by August 15, we may still be able to accommodate you. Please send an e-mail to Ann McGinley at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know the title, your intention to submit your paper for the Title VII symposium, and the date when your paper will be ready for submission. Papers should run about 20-30 law review pages in length.
If you have not already booked your hotel, we encourage all attendees to consider staying at the Elara Hotel, 80 E. Harmon Avenue, a unionized Hilton Grand Vacations Property in the center of the famous Las Vegas Strip. This is the only location on the Strip where shuttle buses to campus and the Culinary Union will pick up and drop off. While negotiations with the Culinary Union are continuing with many of the other properties on the Strip, the Elara’s contract with the Union expires October 1, so we anticipate no labor problems with the Elara during the colloquium. Other properties are classified by the Culinary as “at risk venues,” because the contract extensions that the Union has negotiated with other Strip properties can be terminated by either party with 14 days notice. Please see vegastravelalerts.org/venues for more details.
Rooms in our block at the Elara can be reserved at conference rates by calling 1-877-651-4482, asking for the "William S. Boyd School of Law" rate. A one night deposit is required.
