Want to come to Los Angeles in September?

The Sixth Annual Colloquium on Current Scholarship in Labor and Employment Law will take place in Los Angeles on September 16-17.  It will be jointly hosted by Loyola Los Angeles, Southwestern, and UCLA.  If you are interested, you can register here

As conference lore has it, this conference was initially the brainchild of Paul Secunda and Scott Moss, who on various blog posts were lamenting that there was no subject matter specific  conference on employment and labor law allowing a broad cross section of individuals to present their current work.  I have been to about half of the conferences, and in my view they have been very succesful in building a community of scholars teaching and writing in this area.  I'm delighted that we (along with our friends at Southwestern and UCLA) will be able to welcome folks to our fair city for this year's conference.

Well, Paul and Scott did more work than I did that first year -- but that won't stop me from taking you up on lunch. (I'll buy a round of drinks later).

More importantly, for all the years it's been going on, with a whole host of different organizers at various schools, this conference has just gotten better and better each year. I'm really looking forward to the LA edition.

Joe - my apologies! You were of course involved, and I am sorry for misstating the historical record. I guess I'll have to repay you by buying you lunch when you are out here in September!

Gosh, I had hoped that the lore re how this conference started included me along with Paul and Scott. But in any case, it's a great tradition, and anyone with an interest in the field(s) should come.

Definitely coming to this one. Terribly disappointed I missed it last year.
