Curriculum

Labor Law I

B663 is taught by K. Dau-Schmidt

This course explores the basic law on unions and collective bargaining in the United States. Students will learn about the law governing union organizing campaigns, collective bargaining, strikes and lockouts, and enforcement of the collective agreement. The course is taught through simulation in which the students are employees covered by the National Labor Relations Act and must organize and bargain with President Dau-Schmidt in order to receive fair treatment and a decent grade. Students also act as corporate counsel and aid President Dau-Schmidt in resisting union organizing and negotiating with the union. This course may be taken as a writing course to satisfy that requirement for 15 students only or as a simple regular exam course for all remaining students.
