34th Annual Warns-Render Institute a success

Paul Grossman delivers the keynote address.

A little more than 100 people gathered June 15-16, 2017, for the 34th Annual Warns-Render Labor and Employment Law Institute.

The institute provides high-quality continuing legal education to local and regional labor or employment law attorneys, human resource professionals, union representatives and other workplace experts. Speakers, including attorneys, public servants and professors, attend from across the country. The institute provides Louisville attorneys the opportunity to hear from high-ranking officials, such as the solicitor of labor, EEOC general counsel, or an NLRB member, without leaving town.

The institute creates dialogue between academics, government officials and practitioners. The institute is an inclusive forum where employee, union and management-side representatives all feel welcome and benefit from the education provided.

This year's keynote speaker was Paul Grossman, co-author of the nationally recognized treatise Employment Discrimination Law. Other speakers covered topics ranging from big data to the gig economy.
