Berkeley Journal of Employment and Labor Law
The Berkeley Journal of Employment and Labor Law (formerly the Industrial Relations Law Journal) is a student-edited journal that presents current developments in the field of labor and employment law to scholars, practitioners, and students. BJELL addresses a range of legal issues, including employment discrimination, “traditional” labor law, public sector employment, wage-and-hour law, international and comparative labor law, employee benefits and leave, and workforce participation. The journal is published two times a year and includes traditional scholarly articles, student-authored comments, book reviews, and topical essays.
BJELL is committed to helping students interested in employment and labor law connect with attorneys in the employment and labor law field, as well as providing a forum for academics and practitioners to discuss emerging developments in the field. To this end, the journal hosts the Annual Feller Memorial Lecture, a lunch-time speaker series, and other events.
