Happy Valentine’s to all of our section members. Our Executive Committee is working hard to bring you continued great programming. Don’t miss “Virtual Hearings and Trials in the Time of COVID-19: Perspectives from a Judge, an Arbitrator and a PERB ALJ” on February 24, 2021 or “Workplace Investigation Testimony: The Tightrope of Admissibility” on March 22, 2021. Both webinars will take place at noon. You can find out more information about these and other great programs here.
We are also pleased to announce the Summer 2021 Law Student Scholarship Program, a joint program of the Labor and Employment Law Section and the California Lawyers Foundation. We are committed to fostering the career growth of persons of color, women, members of the LGBTQ community, people with disabilities, and members of other underrepresented groups who are interested in practicing labor and employment law. We will be awarding summer scholarships in the amount of $8,000 to diverse law students to pursue employment or labor related work during Summer 2021. Interested students can find the scholarship application here. Scholarship applications are due on March 15, 2021. More to come next month. Cheers!
