Needless to say, I am super stoked to be taking part in this year's festivities. If you look at the faculty presentations, you will see that the topics represent nearly every possible issue that concerns the law of the workplace. This Colloquium is definitely one of the labor and employment law professor events of the year! Congratualtions to Ann and Ruben for putting together an exceptional program.
