Professor Rebecca Lee is being congratulated by members of the TJSL community after being named the new chair of the Association of American Law Schools (AALS) Section on Labor Relations and Employment Law.

“I am so pleased that Professor Lee is receiving this well-deserved honor,” said Professor Susan Bisom-Rapp. “The AALS Section will benefit from her expertise and vision.”  “Beyond that,” Professor Bisom-Rapp noted, “I cannot think of anyone I’d rather partner with in building TJSL’s labor and employment law program.”

Professor Lee previously served on the Section’s Executive Board, as Secretary, and then as Chair-Elect of the Section. “It is an honor to be the new chair of the AALS Section on Labor Relations and Employment Law and I am so appreciative of everyone's congratulatory and supportive wishes,” said Professor Lee. “The Section had a fantastic panel at the 2014 Annual Meeting, and I am excited to put together next year's panel in collaboration with the Executive Board.”


As Chair Professor Lee will be selecting the theme for the Section’s panel at the 2015 Annual Meeting, selecting panelists, and managing the Section’s budget, among other duties.
