Student Organizations

Labor and Employment Action Project

The HLS Labor and Employment Action Project is an organization of students interested in labor and employment issues. We feel that the power of working people to organize themselves has become more, not less, essential in today's changing economy, and undertake to explore and support such organization. Therefore, our activities include both education of ourselves and our community on labor and employment issues, and activism where we see a need to lend our voices to local or national struggles.

This year, we are planning many exciting events, including a discussion of employee ownership of companies and pensions and a trip to the national Peggy Browning Fund Workers' Rights Conference on October 17-18. Our opening lunch will be on September 24. If you are interested in attending the Peggy Browning Fund Workers' Rights Conference, please find out more here. You can also e-mail labor@law no later than midnight on September 7** indicating your name, year at HLS and a paragraph on why you would like to attend.

Harvard, LEAP, and the Peggy Browning Fund may be able to assist with the cost of attendance. Please e-mail if you have ideas for events--we're looking forward to a great year!
