October 8 – 10, 2020

The Colloquium on Scholarship in Employment and Labor Law is an annual conference where scholars present their in-progress works to their colleagues and receive invaluable feedback as they write their impactful and cutting-edge articles. The conference draws scholars from major law schools across the country and welcomes those who are new to the field or who are experts in other fields writing at the intersection of their own area of expertise and labor or employment law. The Fifteenth Annual COSELL will be held at the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law and kick-off with a screening of American Factory and a panel and reception to follow.

Keynote Event

American Factory

In post-industrial Ohio, a Chinese billionaire opens a new factory in the husk of an abandoned General Motors plant. Early days of hope and optimism give way to setbacks as high-tech China clashes with working-class America.

COSELL 2020's keynote event will be a screening of this Academy Award-winning documentary, followed by a reception, on Thursday evening, October 8.



University of Louisville Louis D. Brandeis School of Law

2219 South 3rd Street
Louisville, KY 40208

Registration Deadline

July 31, 2020


Brandeis School of Law has arranged blocks of rooms at two hotels. Reservations must be made by September 8, 2020 to receive UofL's discount rate. After that date, the room block will be released.

Moxy Louisville Downtown
100 West Washington Street
Louisville, KY 40202
15 rooms at the UofL rate of $149 per night

To travel between Moxy and the Law School will require a taxi, Uber or Lyft. Moxy is located in the historic NuLu Neighborhood of Downtown Louisville.

Hilton Garden Inn Airport
2735 Crittenden Drive
Louisville, KY 40209
25 rooms at the UofL rate of $142 Monday–Thursday, $112 Friday–Sunday

The Hilton Garden Inn is located very near the airport and the Law School. They offer an airport shuttle, and we hope that if business is relatively slow the shuttle might drop those staying at the Law School.

A third option is to stay at one of the many bed and breakfast inns in historic Old Louisville. Central Park is a approximately a mile and a half walk to the Law School. It is safe to walk alone during the day-time and in a group at night.
