The 26th annual Piper Lecture, April 20th
"Knowledge Workers in the New Economy: From
Cliché to Contract"

On Tuesday, April 20, Chicago-Kent will present the 26th annual Kenneth M. Piper Lecture, Knowledge Workers in the New Economy: From Cliché to Contract, from 11:30-1:00 p.m, in the auditorium.

Professor Catherine Fisk of University of Southern California Law School will discuss how the concepts of knowledge work and the new economy have moved rapidly from novelty to Cliché. New characteristics of labor markets and the business practices which they represent are yet to be established in American labor and employment law. Changes in legal doctrine and legal process, as well as the changes in business and labor institutions and practices, need to address the demands of firms and workers for fairness as well as efficiency. The widely documented shift from internal to external labor markets, the transformation of many remaining internal labor markets from ladders to tournaments, the increased emphasis on shareholder primacy in corporate law and capital markets, and many other developments, call for new legal doctrine and new ways of resolving legal disputes. All these changes demand a new way of thinking about the nature, function, interpretation, and enforcement of employment contracts.

Greg Castle, president of Castle & Associates and Julia Clark, general counsel of the International Federation of Professional and Technical Engineers will provide commentary on the lecture.

All faculty, students, and staff are invited to attend.
