National Law Students Workers’ Rights Conference
Published in the September 4, 2012, Advisor
The 14th Annual National Law Students Workers' Rights Conference will be held in Linthicum Heights, Maryland, on October 12 and 13, 2012. The conference organizers aim to create greater understanding of, appreciation for, and interest in the issues facing American workers; they also hope to provide law students with opportunities for networking with fellow law students, top labor lawyers, professors, nonprofit practitioners, and government officials. See http://www.peggybrowningfund.org/ for more information and the registration form.
Each law school is asked to select the students who may attend the conference. Typically, schools consider factors including the student's demonstrated interest in either workers' rights issues or public interest law; whether the student has previously attended the conference; and whether it's the student's last chance to attend. There is no limit on the number of students from each school, as long as space is available (first come, first served).
Submit a completed registration form to the Career Center with a check for $25 payable to The Peggy Browning Fund by September 26, so that we may forward approved applications to the conference organizers by the conference deadline of September 28.
