Labor Arbitration     LAW-833

Arbitration has played a prominent role in American labor relations since its strong endorsement by the Supreme Court in 1957 in the Lincoln Mills decision.  The course will begin with an overview of labor law principles, introducing students to the National Labor Relations Act and collective bargaining.  From there, the course will progress to a study of the labor arbitration process – how it works, the standards and rules arbitrators apply, the advantages of the process, and how to represent clients zealously in the hearings.  Special effort will be given to exposing students to the practice and procedure of arbitration.
