The course will begin with an examination of the basic principles of labor law and venture into how labor law intersects with other areas of law in the 21st century context. The course will cover selected topics in labor law from public and private sector, negotiations, pensions, grievances and arbitrations. This course will review hypotheticals and engage in a negotiations simulation at the end of the course.
