This seminar will examine recent developments in labor law, most of which are occurring in the shadow of the classic NLRA regime. Among other topics, we will likely study workers’ efforts to organize via privately-negotiated recognition agreements; state and local governments’ efforts to promote or deter collective bargaining; and the particular challenges faced by immigrant and other non-traditional workers. Throughout, we will also consider the broader constitutional and economic issues raised by such developments, and will ask how labor law should adapt to modern workplaces more generally.
