    Regional Workshops

    Advocating For Workplace Justice - Scheduling Twelve Workshops in 2016!

    After a series of twelve successful workshops in the fall of 2015, PBF’s Regional Workshop Committee has agreed to plan and organize the same number at universities across the country for this fall. PBF workshops are an opportunity for law students to learn about labor law, hear about different focuses in the industry, and network with labor attorneys from union-side law firms, in-house union counsel, worker centers, and government agencies that oversee labor and employment laws.

    Right now, the committee is focused on planning workshops at Drexel's Thomas R. Kline School of Law, Fordham University School of Law, Georgetown University Law Center, Harvard Law School, Ohio State University College of Law, Southern University Law Center, Stanford Law School, University of Alabama School of Law, University of California Los Angeles School of Law, University of Miami School of Law, University of Michigan Law School, and University of Washington School of Law.

    Members of PBF’s Regional Workshop Committee include Co-Chairs Rich Brean, PBF Board Chair and General Counsel at United Steelworkers and Gwynne Wilcox, PBF Board member and Partner at Levy Ratner, PC; Joe Lurie, PBF President; Lynn Rhinehart, PBF Board member and General Counsel at the AFL-CIO; Antonia Domingo, PBF 2013 Fellow Alumna and Associate at United Steelworkers; Mary Anne Moffa, PBF Executive Director; and Julia Watkins, PBF Program Specialist.
