The Mysterious Disappearance of Labor . . . and of Labor Law?
Sponsor
Rush McKnight Labor Law Lecture presented by CISCDR (Center for the Interdisciplinary Study of Conflict and Dispute Resolution)
MAR 4, 2009
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Location
Moot Courtroom

Professor Arthurs will discuss how the disappearance of labor as a collective presence in the workplace, as a sociological category, as a political force and as a domain of public policy may come to influence the practices and even the very existence of labor law as a field of professional interest and academic scholarship.
