Our Curriculum

The Center’s work and offerings are firmly grounded in the Law School’s thorough and carefully designed labor and employment law curriculum. Each year, second- and third-year students can take:

  • Labor Law
  • Employment Law
  • Employment Discrimination
  • Advanced Labor Law
  • Labor and Employment Arbitration
  • Public Sector Labor and Employment Law
  • Pensions and Benefits Law (ERISA)
  • Directed Research Paper Supervision

Students can also elect to take related courses within the dispute resolution curriculum, as offered in cooperation with the Law School’s Hugh L. Carey Center for Dispute Resolution. These courses include:

  • Alternative Dispute Resolution
  • Interviewing and Counseling
  • Negotiation
  • Representing Clients in Mediation

To complement this coursework, students can apply the critical and analytical skills learned in the classroom in real-world contexts through supervised externships in labor and employment law. Extern opportunities have included placements at the National Labor Relations Board, the U.S. Equal Opportunity Commission and the U.S. Department of Labor.
