Protecting Rights, Pursuing Justice, Promoting Professionalism

Law School Resources


The Section encourages law students, faculty and administrators from the various Florida law schools who have an interest in labor and employment law to participate in our Section’s activities. Participation in our activities provides law students who may be considering practicing in the labor and employment field the opportunity to learn more about both the substantive and practical aspects of practicing labor and employment law while having the opportunity to interact and become familiar with practitioners in our field. Similarly, our Section encourages administrators and faculty from the Florida law schools whose curriculum and/or instructional discipline involves labor and employment areas to become involved in Section activities to stay abreast of current practice challenges and to also make Section members aware of topics of discussion in academia.


The Section’s relationships with law school administrators, faculty and students is important as it allows our Section to partner with law schools to provide faculty the opportunity to have our members assist them by providing resources, presentations, guest lecturing or other services to facilitate students learning more about labor and employment law.


Our relationships with law school administrators and faculty is also important as it helps us to collectively identify Florida law students who may be deserving of our Labor and Employment Law Section scholarships. Each year, the Section accepts recommendations from Florida law school administrators and/or faculty regarding deserving students who excelled in their studies while exhibiting an in interest in practicing labor and employment law upon graduation. The Section reviews all applications for scholarships and annually awards scholarships to a deserving student at each of the State’s law schools.
