Basic Labor and Employment Law Today:
         How to Prepare for Tomorrow

A long-awaited Section project is finally coming to
fruition this Fall. On October 22-23, 1992, in con-
junction with Northwestern University School of
Law in Chicago, the Section will present its First
Annual Basic Labor Law National Institute. It will
be held in cooperation with the National Bar As-
sociation, the Presidents' Committee on Employ-
ment of People with Disabilities, and the ABA
Young Lawyers Division.
  Northwestern's commitment to the Institute is
evidenced by the fact that University President Ar-
nold R. Weber will personally welcome the atten-
dees at the end of the first day's session. Other
notable speakers include Don Livingston, general
counsel of the Equal Employment Opportunity
Commission; Jerry M. Hunter, general counsel of
the National Labor Relations Board; Elizabeth
Kinney, regional director of the Board's Region 13;
and Glen Zipp, regional director of the Board's Re-
gion 33.
  One particularly attractive feature of the Insti-
tute is that each afternoon participants will be able
to select from three concurrent breakout sessions
devoted to specialized employment and labor top-
ics, such as Affirmative Action Requirements, Em-
ployee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA),

Favorable reports about our program in San Fran-
cisco still abound. Judge Breyer's remarks at our
luncheon were truly outstanding and entertaining
as well. Don Capuano, and
Program    Co-Chairs Jana
Carey and Steve Gordon are
deserving of kudos, and a spe-
cial mention for Jim Paris,
our San Francisco host, for his
many arrangements and hos-
pitality. It was a fine meeting!
  Our committees are busily
at work planning for the
forthcoming year and this
