The speakers represent leaders in the profession and are often Capital University Law School alumni. Proceeds from the event cover nominal program costs with the majority of fees going towards a book scholarship for a current LELA student. The CLE is coordinated by students with the support of Advisor and Professor Emeritus, Floyd D. Weatherspoon, and the Assistant Dean for Professional Development, Shawn M. Beem, L'02.

    About the Labor & Employment Law Association 
    The purpose of the Labor and Employment Law Association is to keep Capital University Law School student members advised of developments in labor and employment law. To achieve its mission, the Association hosts panel discussions with prominent labor and employment law attorneys from law firms, public agencies, and corporations. 

    Founded in 1994 by 15 Capital law students and Professor Floyd D. Weatherspoon, the organization has maintained the legacy envisioned by the charter members. The Association continues to play a prominent role in ensuring that Capital students are aware of current labor and employment law issues, externships, and the concentration certificate offered by the Law School. Through programming, the Association also provides powerful networking opportunities within this practice area.
