Law Review Symposium

Access to Justice in the Contemporary Workplace

From corporate campuses to strawberry farms, countless employees face injustice in the workplace. In this symposium we will discuss the policies and practices that restrict an employee’s access to the legal system; the role of the rule of law; and worker confidence in the legal structures that provide impartiality in labor and employment law.

Panel topics will include achieving justice outside the courthouse, finding justice through diversity and inclusion programs, and an exploration of the future of work. Commissioner Charlotte A. Burrows of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission will provide the keynote address. Our distinguished group of panelists include Lindbergh Porter ’81, chairperson of the board at Littler Mendelson; Jeffrey Hirsch, professor of law at the University of North Carolina School of Law; Mina Kotkin, professor of law at Brooklyn Law School; and many others.
