2015 Stetson Law Review Symposium - Inequality, Opportunity, and the Law of the Workplace

On March 6, 2015, the Stetson Law Review hosted a symposium titled "Inequality, Opportunity, and the Law of the Workplace." The symposium brought together legal academics, economists, attorneys, journalists, and students to explore the relationship between rising economic inequality in the United States and the complex web of federal, state, and local laws that constitute the field of labor and employment law.

Following the live symposium, works by many of the panelists and speakers were published in the Stetson Law Review, Volume 45, Issue 1. Those works can be found at the links below.
