Darci Van Duzer and Jun Lim to Represent Oregon Law at National Law Students Workers’ Rights Conference
Oregon Law student Darci Van Duzer recently was chosen to represent the University of Oregon at the Tenth Annual National Law Students Workers’ Rights Conference in Silver Spring, Maryland, October 17-18. Peggy Browning Fund Fellow Jun Lim also will be representing the University of Oregon at the Conference as she finishes her summer 2008 fellowship. The conference is supported by the Peggy Browning Fund — a nonprofit corporation established in the memory of prominent labor attorney and a vigorous supporter of workers’ rights Margaret A. “Peggy” Browning.
The conference, which seeks to create a greater understanding of, appreciation for, and interest in the issues facing American workers, features keynote speaker Edward F. Ott, executive director of the New York City Central Labor Council. In addition to Ott, the conference features 22 law professionals and academics who will serve as conference speakers and workshop facilitators.
Van Duzer’s and Lim’s trips to the conference are fully funded by the Peggy Browning Fund, which includes more than 100 participating law schools throughout the country.
