REGIONAL MEETING PAPERS

February 16-17, 2018 – Joint Regional Program:

The 5th and 11th Circuit Regional Committees joined forces to offer Fellows and guest a unique programming opportunity over President’s Day Weekend in New Orleans, LA at the historic Le Pavillon Hotel. The weekend started with a dinner at the famous Galatoire’s Restaurant on Bourbon Street. The Saturday morning program featured outgoing NLRB Chair Phil Miscimarra sharing his thoughts on the time he spent as Chair and what’s ahead for the Board. Fellows Michael Green and Rod Tanner discussed Speech Protections and Black Lives Matter in the Workplace, sharing their perspectives on how, and if, the speech of the protesting worker should be protected. Professor William Corbett, the Frank L. Maraist Professor of Law and Wex S. Malone Professor of Law at Paul Herbert Law Center, Louisiana State University, addressed recent developments in labor and employment law. Over lunch, Honorary Fellow, and recently retired 7th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge, the Honorable Richard Posner, joined us to discuss his experiences as they relate to civility in the courtroom and his new venture – a pro bono law firm benefiting pro se litigants. The day ended with a cocktail reception on the rooftop terrace of Le Pavillon.
