Michael Z. Green, professor at Texas A&M University School of Law, will join the Labor Law Group this year. The Labor Law Group originated in 1946 to improve the instructional materials and books for law students on labor law. Led by the efforts of Professor Willard Wirtz, academics and legal practitioners published their first book in 1953 about the issue.
"I'm incredibly humbled by this invitation because the Labor Law Group is quite prestigious to all who specialize in labor and employment law," says Green.
He will be among other experts in the field, including Professors Richard A. Bales of Ohio Northern University Law School, Stephen F. Befort of University of Minnesota Law School and Lise Gelernter of University at Buffalo School of Law. They are co-authors of the forthcoming fourth edition of the Thompson/West book, ADR in the Workplace.
"The textbook being created by my colleagues and I will be used to help train law students and further the organization's mission," Green says.
