In this two unit course, students will generate and publish writing on labor and employment law, labor politics, and contemporary labor market trends. Class meetings will be highly interactive and collaborative. Part of each class session will be dedicated to developing writing topics and part will be dedicated to discussing each other’s work. Students will be required to write four substantive posts of approximately 1200 words each with the aim of being published on the OnLabor blog (www.onlabor.org). The course will provide students interested in labor and employment the opportunity to research and write on cutting edge issues and to publish their work for a live and extensive audience.
