Career Compass: A Map for Your Legal Career in Labor and Employment Law

Labor and Employment Law is a fast-paced, dynamic area of law, involving legal issues that affect individuals in one of the most important facets of their lives—their jobs. As long as people have jobs, labor and employment law issues will arise. Employment relations are vital to employees, employers, and the economy as a whole. 

The field provides a wide variety of jobs, working for employees and/or unions, employers, and government agencies. Lawyers who practice labor and employment law often engage in both consulting and litigation. Legal rules implicate theories of economics, freedom, and democracy. And the factual issues that arise are often interesting and sometimes even entertaining.
