Sign up now to attend the 46th Annual Conference on Labor Relations and Employment Law. The event in Richmond spans three days, Sept. 29-Oct. 1, and anticipates offering 13 MCLE Credit Hours (2.5 Ethics). The early registration discount ends Sept. 2.

The conference, featuring leading labor and employment attorneys, will be held at the Omni Richmond Hotel.

Book hotel rooms by Sept. 15 to get the group rate. Call 1-800-The-Omni to make arrangements. Reference The Virginia Bar Association and the conference name to get the $159/night rate.

The conference will provide ample opportunities to engage with fellow practitioners as well as to enjoy what downtown Richmond has to offer. Try a boat cruise on the canal or dine arounds.

Educational programming highlights

Sessions include:

  • A two-hour seminar for young lawyers on practical advice for practicing employment law,
  • An EEOC update,
  • LGBT issues in the workplace,
  • Crafting a winning opening statement and closing argument, and
  • Recent development in retaliation law.

Details for attendees

Early registrants save money. Fees rise after Sept. 2. Conference fees equate to as little as $25 per anticipated MCLE Credit Hour for VBA and Labor Relations and Employment Law Section members. Special pricing has been arranged for public sector attorneys.
