Week of February 8, 2010

9th Annual 7th Circuit NELA Conference

February 15 | 8:00 a.m. | Chicago-Kent College of Law
NELA (the National Employment Lawyers Association) is a group of several thousand lawyers who usually represent employees in employment law-related matters.† NELA/Illinois's Seventh Circuit Conference, particularly the substantive sessions on developments during the last year and on discovery, are always fascinating for anyone interested in employment law.† Chicago-Kent faculty and students may attend free of charge, but NELA/Illinois needs advance registration so that they know how many handouts, etc. to make.

Registering for the conference does not obligate you to stay for the entire day.† Students, remember this is also a useful networking opportunity if you are interested in employee-side work.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mary Rose Strubbe [mstrubbe@kentlaw.edu].
