Employment & Labor Practice

If you pursue employment and labor practice, you would represent either employers or employees.  Some labor lawyers focus their practice on labor-management relations, and labor unions and collective bargaining.  Others concentrate on other aspects of the regulation of employment and employee’s rights.  Lawyers in these areas of practice often appear before administrative agencies and in state and federal court. Thus, if you are interested in employment and labor practice, you should be familiar not only with the basic substantive law principles but also with the skills necessary for litigation, negotiation and arbitration.
