Labor Law

Academic Year

Labor Law studies issues pertaining to the relationship between individuals, unions, and employers. This course focuses primarily on establishing the collective bargaining relationship, collective bargaining, concerted activities from organizing to picketing to striking, administering the collective bargaining agreement through arbitration, the NLRB, and courts. The course also addresses issues dealing with the unique tri-partite nature of the individual-union-employer relationship. Among other things, as part of the course, students will negotiate an employment agreement on behalf of labor or management and will argue a motion to vacate or enforce an arbitration award.
