2007 Labor/Emp Works-In-Progress Conf: Denver/Boulder!

It's only been two months since a raucous time was had by all at the First Annual Colloquium on Current Scholarship in Labor & Employment Law here at Marquette -- the conference that came about from some us us grumbling, here on Prawfs, "why aren't there more of these conferences" -- and already the planning for the Second Annual is well underway!  Marty Katz (U. Denver Law) tells me that next year's will be on September 27-29, 2007, split in some manner between U. Denver and U. Colorado -- both of which have shiny new buildings that I look forward to seeing.

If you'd like to be kept in the loop as further details emerge (e.g.: more scheduling info; registration procedures/deadlines), email Marty that you want to be one of his spam-ees.

For those of you not among the 50+ at this past October's event, this conference is a great way (1) to get feedback on your recent scholarship or work in progress (even if it's not written yet -- most folks' works in progress weren't) from a good number of profs who all specialize in labor/employment law, (2) to see a wide variety of emerging scholarship in the field (we had about 50 papers split into three parallel tracks), and (3) to get together with a decent proportion of  those writing in labor/employment law (the 50 or so in attendance must be a decent fraction of the total body of law profs writing in the field, no?).  This past year we accommodated everyone who wanted to present, though that can't be a firm promise for this coming year (after the number of presenters reaches the mid-50s, it gets hard to schedule any more!).

Welcome to the club, Op! I love teaching and writing about labor & employment law -- it's intellectually interesting, has tremendous practical importance, and students can even get actual jobs doing it.

And thanks to Marty and the gang for continuing this, um, hallowed tradition. See you all in Colorado!

As a soon-to-be newly minted Labor/Employment prawf, I look forward to the colloquium. As a died-in-the-wool fly fisher, I look forward to visiting Colorado in September!
