David Doorey (York Univ. (Canada)) has posted on SSRN his forthcoming piece in the Canadian Labour and Employment Law Journal: Harry and the Steelworker (or Teaching Labor Law to Non-Law Students.
Here's the abstract:
This paper examines the challenge of teaching labor and employment law to non-law university students. Labor and employment law content is widely taught outside of law schools in North American, in business schools and in industrial relations, human resource management, and other undergraduate programs. However, there has been hardly any research into core pedagogical questions, such as why we are teaching this material to non-lawyers in the first place, and, how we should be teaching it? This paper explores these questions and encourages researchers to explore them as part of a broader empirical research agenda going forward.
An important pedagogical piece about how we as professors can go about make labor and employment law more accessible to a wider audience.
