Who We Are

The College of Labor & Employment Lawyers is a non-profit professional association honoring the leading lawyers nationwide in the practice of Labor and Employment Law.  Our Fellows are recognized as distinguished members of the labor and employment community who promote achievement, advancement and excellence in the practice by setting standards of professionalism and civility, by sharing their experience and knowledge and by acting as a resource for academia, the government, the judiciary and the community at large.

"It was an honor to be asked to join three other future Fellows of the College as one of the Founding Governors. The prospect of creating an organization where one is nominated by one’s peers for admission based on shared interests and achievements in the field was exciting. As one of five female Founding Governor (and, later, the first female President of the College), I made it my personal goal to assist in building diverse membership which would foster the best environment for the exchange of ideas."
