Description: Advocating For Workplace Justice is one of Peggy Browning Fund's regional workshops held at law schools across the country. The workshop consists of a one-hour panel discussion followed by a one-hour networking reception. The purpose of the panel is to expose law students to careers as worker advocates and to encourage them to apply for one of the 75 paid Peggy Browning Fellowships at union legal departments, worker centers, legal services offices, union-side law firms, and advocacy organizations. The panel features union lawyers, labor law firm attorneys, labor law professors, Peggy Browning Fellowship Alumni and attorneys from the U.S. Department of Labor and the National Labor Relations Board. Panelists discuss their practices and the satisfactions and frustrations of their career choice. In addition, a former Peggy Browning Fellow discusses the nuts and bolts of Peggy Browning Fund’s Summer Fellowship Program, which is open to both 1Ls and 2Ls, and how to apply. Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP via Symplicity, by going to the Events tab and selecting the "Workshop" you wish to attend.
