minority Law Student Summer Intern Program


Earlier this year, the Council appointed Max Zimny
and Christopher Barreca to serve as co-chairs of a
newly created Section Out-Reach Committee. Its
mandate is to develop methods to reach out to mi-
nority lawyers and students on behalf of the Sec-
tion.
  The committee has proposed a minority law stu-
dent summer intern program, which was approved
by the Council at its summer meeting in Atlanta.
The proposal is designed to stimulate the interest
of minority law students in the field of labor and
employment law by creating summer employment
opportunities for first- and second-year minority
law students attending ABA-approved law schools.
  The committee envisions that commitments
would be obtained for a substantial number of la-
bor and employment law summer legal positions in


One of the most important duties of the Chair is to
coordinate the program for the Annual Meeting.
Mindful of that, the first planning session for the
1992 Annual Meeting in San
Francisco was held while the
Atlanta Annual Meeting was
still in progress. Mark your
calendars for August 10-12,
1992. Future newsletters will
provide more details.
  During the coming year our
Section will continue to focus
on legal education of our
members. We have two Na-
tional Institutes scheduled;
new treatises are underway concerning such diverse
areas as international labor law and the Railway
Labor Act; and work is proceeding on the compan-
ion casebook to the labor arbiration advocates text-
book, the third edition of Developing Labor Law
and the third edition of Employment Discrimina-
tion Law, as well as several supplements to our pub-
lications. Of course, the excellent treatise Employee
Benefits Law was just published in August.
  As Chair, during the coming year, one of my goals
is to increase Section members' participation on
committees. We are all very busy and have many


law firms, corporations, and unions for the summer
of 1992. Minority students in the upper one-third
of their class would be invited to apply for partic-
ipation in the program and selections would be
made based upon class standing, faculty recom-
mendations, experience and interest.
  The committee co-chairs plan to visit with the
deans of approximately twenty ABA-approved law
schools to obtain their agreement and interest in
participating in this program. Section members in-
terested in providing employment opportunities for
this program should contact the committee co-
chairs: Christopher A. Barreca, General Electric
Company, W3D, 3135 Easton Turnpike, Fairfield,
CT 06431; and Max Zimny, International Ladies
Garment Workers' Union, 1710 Broadway, New
York, NY 10019.                               U


claims on our time, but I would urge you to at least
try a committee assignment, attend a Midwinter
Meeting, participate in a program, or draft a sec-
tion of a supplement. It's all professionally and per-
sonally satisfying. For example, many of us are
looking forward to attending the twentieth Mid-
winter Meeting of the Development of the Law Un-
der the National Labor Relations Act Committee
in 1992. I attended the first one in 1972 and have
found participation in that committee very reward-
ing. Those who actively participate in other com-
mittees have had the same experience. If you aren't
a committee member now, drop me a note with
your committee preference; we'll assign you and put
you in touch with the committee co-chairs. If you
are already a committee member, contact your co-
chairs and participate.
  One of the most exciting aspects of our field is
the ever-changing law. (When the unread advance
sheets pile up, we sometimes think that a less in-
teresting area of the law may be attractive after all!)
The changes are not slowing down either; on Au-
gust 8, 199 1, the Commissioners on Uniform State
Laws, at their 100th annual meeting, adopted the
Model Employment Termination Act after four
years' work.
  This model act, if enacted by the individual states,
                             (continued on page 7)
