Are you interested in representing workers? Have you ever wondered what "union-side labor law" means? Does working for the federal government in the employment and/or labor law contexts interest you?

Join SJI in welcoming three CLS alums who practice in these fields for an informative session on the wide range of public interest labor and employment lawyering work opportunities.
