University of Idaho Critical Legal Studies Journal Symposium
Register Today for the 2021 Idaho Critical Legal Studies Journal Spring Symposium,
The Future of Work in a Post-Pandemic America
COVID-19 may have changed work forever.
The pandemic disrupted the global economy and turned the practice of law upside down. However, the pandemic’s impact was not felt evenly across all demographic groups and economic sectors. Please join us on Friday, April 16, 2021, via Zoom, for the Idaho Critical Legal Studies Spring Symposium, “The Future of Work in a Post-Pandemic America.” Employment and labor law scholars and practitioners will address how 2020 affected essential workers, workers of color, and women, while also recognizing the intersectional inequality faced by workers who are members of two or more of these groups.
Professor Charlotte Garden of the Seattle University School of Law will give the symposium’s keynote address. A full schedule is available below.
- 10am Panel: Essential Worker Law and Future Prospects for Organized Labor
- 12pm Keynote: Post-Pandemic Labor Law Reforms
- Featuring Professor Charlotte Garden, Seattle University School of Law
- 2pm Panel: 2020’s Economic Impact on Communities of Color
