Minnesota Law Review Symposium to Examine the Future of Organized Labor
OCTOBER 10, 2013—The Minnesota Law Review will host its annual symposium, "The Future of Organized Labor: Labor Law in the 21st Century," from 8:15 a.m.-3:55 p.m. on Oct. 25, 2013, in Lockhart Hall (Room 25).
The symposium will feature keynote addresses and three panels featuring professors and practitioners from across the country representing both the management and labor sides of the debate. Craig Becker, general counsel of the AFL-CIO, and G. Roger King, of counsel at Jones Day, will deliver keynote addresses and participate in a moderated discussion.
Key panelists include Philip Miscimarra, who was sworn in as a member of the National Labor Relations Board in August. Jim Rowader, vice president and general counsel of employee and labor relations at Target Corporation, will also be a panelist. Mr. Rowader and Mr. Miscimarra will be joined by law professors from New York University, the University of Texas, and the University of Minnesota among others.
The symposium's three panels will focus on the following topics: "Unions in the Crosshairs: How It Happened and the Road Ahead for Labor," "International Labor Law: Opportunity, Solution, or Intrusion?" and "Achievable Labor Law Reform."
Attendees will have a unique opportunity to learn about the rapidly changing field of labor law and new ideas for reform. Attendees, panelists and legal scholars are invited to continue this dialogue at a reception following the symposium.
