Law Clerk Networking Conference

To enhance their summer experience, students also participate in the LCC Minority Outreach Program Law Clerk Networking Conference, which features workshops and presentations on labor law practice, union organizing and representation, politics and legislation. In addition, the networking conference offers students the opportunity to share experiences and make important career contacts with LCC attorneys and union staff. The LCC’s annual Minority Outreach Program Law Clerk Networking Conference for minority law students working as summer law clerks in LCC firms and legal departments is traditionally held in June at the AFL-CIO in Washington, D.C. The conference provides law clerks with an informative overview of the major challenges and opportunities facing today’s labor movement. Union staff, labor law practitioners and members of the LCC Minority Caucus lead discussions on various topics.

The program often includes the following panels: Researching Labor Law, Introduction to Labor Law, The State of the Labor Movement, Labor Law Practice Areas, Social Justice, Organizing and the Law, Union-Side Labor Practice: Contract Enforcement, Finding a Job as Union-Side Labor Lawyer, the LCC Minority Outreach and Mentor Program, Law School Recruiting, NLRB Practice and Immigration.
