The executive committee for the IndyBar's Labor & Employment Law Section has had a very productive year thus far. We have spent a great deal of time strategizing and planning upcoming CLE opportunities that we believe will be relevant and insightful for you and your practices.
Our first CLE on Tuesday, May 26, will address the many recent decisions from the NLRB. On Tuesday, June 16, we will have a CLE focused on Federal and State Whistleblower protections. We plan to have our annual U.S. Supreme Court update focused on various employment law cases, which will feature Professor Barbara J. Fick of the University of Notre Dame Law School. In addition to that, work is underway on devoting an entire CLE to the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Young v. United Parcel Service. Please consider attending these and other CLE opportunities, as they are very affordable and we believe you will find the substance valuable.
In addition to CLE planning, we continue to work to provide relevant and interesting content on our section's website related to legal updates and articles about employment law generally. The executive committee is also excited to have established a $500 annual scholarship through the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law for a law student. In selecting the student, the law school will give preference to students interested in labor and employment law who hope to remain in Indiana upon graduation. We have committed to funding this scholarship for the next five years. The executive committee believed this was a great way to give back to those just starting their legal careers, promote labor and employment law, and highlight the many great things the IndyBar does for its community.
If you have any ideas or suggestions you would like to share for the executive committee to consider in the future, please just let me or anyone on the IndyBar staff know. We appreciate your membership and continued support of the IndyBar and the Labor & Employment Law Section!
