Steve Willborn (Nebraska) writes to tell us about an upcoming conference on international labor law. Here are the details:
The United States Branch of the International Society for Labor and Social Security Law (ISLSSL) is sponsoring a one-day conference on May 20, 2009, at Northwestern University Law School. The conference will have sessions on labor and employment law in Asia, in Latin America, and in confederal systems (focusing on developments in Europe). Prominent scholars and practitioners from around the world will be there, including Ted St. Antoine from Michigan; Matt Finkin from Illinois; Andrea Christensen from Kaye Scholar in New York; Frank Hendrickx from Catholic University in Belgium; Earl Brown, Asia Regional Counsel for the AFL-CIO; and Ana Gomes from Catholic University in Santos, Brazil.
The conference is very reasonably priced (about $100) and is the day before the annual meeting of the National Academy of Arbitrators, so one might be able to get double-duty out of the trip. More information can be found in the conference brochure and registration form. If you have questions about the ISLSSL or the conference, you can contact the Chair of the U.S. Branch, Steve Willborn.
