The faculty, staff, and research associates of the Program include some
of the nation’s premier scholars of labor studies and an array of
internationally renowned intellectuals. The executive training program
(HTUP) works closely with trade unions around the world to bring excellence
in labor education to trade union leadership. The LWP regularly holds
forums, conferences, and discussion groups on labor issues of concern
to business, unions, and the government.
Since joining the Harvard Law School in September 2002, the Labor and Worklife Program (LWP) has sought to integrate its work with the Law School’s mission and strategic plan, to involve law students interested in labor and employment in all of its activities, and to set out an ambitious plan for new research, practitioner engagement and public policy initiatives. With its focus on the world of work and workers, and encompassing the Harvard Trade Union Program (an executive mid-career program for union leaders founded in 1942), the LWP has organized projects and programs that seek to understand critical changes in labor markets and labor law, and to analyze the role of unions, business, and government as they affect the world of work.
