From my dear colleague and Friend of Indisputably, Michael Z. Green:
Welcome back to many of you from Spring Break. Now that you are refreshed and looking for something new to do for entertainment, I want to make you aware of a conference we are holding at the Texas A&M University School of Law on Friday, April 5, 2019 (see flyer below). The theme of the conference is “Modern Social Movements and the Workplace Impact.” This program is sponsored by the Workplace Law Program at Texas A&M School of Law and co-sponsored by the Aggie Dispute Resolution Program. We have an outstanding program with many of our panelists discussing various aspects of the #MeToo and other social movements while addressing their workplace impact as employers and employees continue to find better ways to resolve disputes. At noon, the Dallas EEOC Regional Attorney, Robert A. Canino, will be speaking about various enforcement issues facing the EEOC during this time of social movement. He will be joining the following line-up of law school speakers who are all accomplished workplace scholars : Charlotte Alexander, Georgia State University, J. Mack Robinson College of Business & College of Law; Henry L. Chambers, Jr., University of Richmond School of Law; Ruben J. Garcia, William S. Boyd School of Law, University of Nevada, Las Vegas; Nicole Buonocore Porter, University of Toledo College of Law; Elizabeth C. Tippett, University of Oregon School of Law; and Jamillah Bowman Williams, Georgetown Law Center.
We think you will find the program extremely interesting. More details about the conference may be found at the following webpage link where you may register for the conference at no charge: https://law.tamu.edu/faculty-staff/news-events/conferences-and-symposia/workplace-law-conference/registration Come on down to Texas for the first Friday in April to join me and our Director, Nancy Welsh, who will be moderating one of the panels. If you click on the program link in the first sentence of this paragraph, it will take you to the actual description of each panel and the titles of the topics to be covered by each panelist. Even if you cannot attend, please share the news about the conference with your colleagues who may be interested.
In addition to the excellent topics to be covered by the prominent scholars who will be speaking, Professor Jean Sternlight, who was offered an opportunity to participate but could not do so, has agreed to have her recent paper, “Mandatory Arbitration Stymies Progress: Towards Justice in Employment Law: Where To, #MeToo?”, 54 Harv. Civ. Rts.-Civ. Lib. L. Rev. 155 (2019), made available to those attending . If you end up not being able to attend the conference at Texas A&M, two of the presenters (Elizabeth Tippett from Oregon and Michael Green from Texas A&M) are joining Jean and Jennifer Robbennolt on a plenary panel regarding #MeToo at the Legal Educator’s Colloquium at the ABA Dispute Resolution Section program to be held on Saturday morning, April 13, 2019 in Minneapolis. You can maybe ask them more questions there if you cannot make it to Texas A&M on April 5.
