Labor & Employment Arbitration

B788 is taught by M. Kelley

The course will focus on labor arbitration as a method of settling disputes that arise under a collective bargaining agreement. The first few weeks will cover the law that created and governs labor arbitration in the private sector. We will also discuss employment arbitration. Employment arbitration focuses on contractual and statutory claims brought by individual employees. Lectures will also include discussion of practical legal skills and surviving in the legal world, after graduation. The rest of the course is advocacy training for arbitration. Each student will participate in arbitration advocacy exercises, including the trial of an arbitration case. The grade is based principally on performance in the skills component. There are no prerequisites. Enrollment is limited.
