It's that time of year again . . . . Brad Arehart and Jason Bent, Secretaries for the AALS Sections on Labor Relations & Employment Law and Employment Discrimination, respectively write to seek info on career moves, awards, conferences, and other reports of interest. They're also looking for any publications out or forthcoming in 2013 and anyone who would be willing to write a short case brief for the annual section newsletters. From Brad & Jason:
It is time once again for the preparation of a joint annual newsletter for the AALS Section on Employment Discrimination and the Section on Labor Relations and Employment Law, and we need your help as readers and section members. Please forward this message to any and all people you know who teach or write in the Employment Discrimination, Labor Law, and Employment Law fields.
First, if you have news of any faculty visits, lateral moves, entry-level hires, or promotions and tenure that are not listed in this Workplace Prof Blog post:http://lawprofessors.typepad.com/laborprof_blog/2013/04/workplace-prof-moves-2013-2014-edition.html, please e-mail that news to Jason Bent at email@example.com.
Second, please also e-mail Jason Bent with any information about conference announcements and calls for papers, employment or fellowship opportunities, honors and awards, and reports on recent conferences or other events of interest to the two Sections’ members.
Third, we want to include a list of relevant employment or labor law-related publications published in 2013. Please hold your forthcoming 2014 publications for next year’s newsletter. These publications can be books, articles, and chapters. Please also send a list of your 2013 publications to Jason Bent.
Fourth and finally, we want to solicit anyone who would be interested in writing a brief description of a recent important labor and employment case or any significant new labor or employment legislation. Your subject could be a recent Supreme Court decision (including either University of Texas Southwestern Med. Ctr. v. Nassar or Vance v. Ball State Univ.), a significant circuit court decision or emerging circuit split, a state supreme court decision, or an innovative and potentially influential new federal, state, or local law. The description should be fairly short (under 2 pages). If you're looking for an easy way to get your name out there or want a quick outlet for your ruminations about a case or new law, this could be a good opportunity. Just let us know what you are interested in writing about. Please send your submissions to Brad Areheart firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please send all submissions by November 1, 2012.
Thank you very much for your help!
Jason Bent and Brad Areheart
