Curriculum and Requirements
Program in Labor and Employment Law
To complete the program, students must take four core courses (Labor Law, Employment Relationships, Employment Discrimination, and Legal Writing 4), a labor/employment elective course, a seminar within the program curriculum, and one of three practicum options.
As the centerpiece of Chicago-Kent's Institute for Law and the Workplace, the Program in Labor and Employment Law offers a logical, thoughtfully paced sequence of coursework and practical skills training that provides a comprehensive, rigorous and innovative preparation for the practice of labor and employment law.
Day students (in their second year) and evening students (in their second and third years) take four core courses (see below) that provide the classroom basics, which are then applied in a seminar, an elective course, and a required practicum.
This sequence of course work offers program graduates a unique preview of and preparation for labor and employment law practice.
