My third year of teaching the course Protective Legislation for Workers was the charm. As a new course developed by Prof. Barouh and myself, we have steadily fine-tuned the class based on student feedback and trial and error. Fifteen excellent students (mostly third year) brought the class alive this spring with insightful and regular participation in our seminar format.

I was very impressed with their essay answers on the final exam and wished many of them good luck after graduation. Most of our graduating third year students have new attorney jobs already, with at least half going into labor & employment, workers’ compensation or disability law. This is a testament to the strong labor & employment law program at St. John’s led by Prof. David Gregory.

I wish everyone a safe and restful summer.
