Dean Douglas E. Ray (St. Thomas University School of Law) and Arthur T. Carter, Esq. (Haynes and Boone, LLP and Adjunct Professor SMU Dedman School of Law) co-chair the very successful course on Labor Law and Labor Arbitration.

This intensive basic course on labor law and labor arbitration emphasizes the legal framework within which employers, unions, and individual employees pursue their interests. It is designed to be a practical guide for the practice of labor law.

A note from Douglas E. Ray
"Whether you have practiced labor and employment law for years or are just learning about it, I think you will find the Labor Law and Labor Arbitration Course both valuable and interesting. In the four days you are with us, you will learn about the law of the workplace, including employees’ representation rights, collective bargaining, strikes, lockouts, and boycotts, and labor arbitration, issues that can affect the course and survival of a business. You will also learn about the protected collective rights of those not in unions. This is an ever evolving field that responds to changes in the economy, to new technology and to the winds of political change. With the help of nationally outstanding labor law professors, experienced expert practitioners at the top of their profession, and dedicated NLRB officials, we will provide both an overview of the field and detailed practice tips. You will also have the opportunity to get to know and learn from the other talented members of your class. Past attendees have come from all over the country and included management and union attorneys, corporate counsel, industrial relations counsel, law professors, and government officials. If you are a Texas lawyer, you will be happy to know that the program fully satisfies the Texas Board of Legal Specialization requirement of 24 hours NLRA credit. Wherever you are from, the program provides up to 27 hours of continuing legal education credit, including 2 hours of Ethics. I look forward to welcoming you to our program."
