The Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) Labor and Employment Law Council (LELC) is a network of experienced construction labor and employment attorneys from across the U.S. who regularly represent local AGC chapters and member companies. The LELC is pleased to present its 35th Annual Construction Labor Law Symposium, a special professional development and networking opportunity for attorneys and labor relations managers, this year with the added feature of an optional Pre-Symposium Workshop on Hot Topics in Project Labor Agreements.

Who Should Attend

This event is specifically for attorneys and labor relations professionals affiliated with AGC.  AGC Labor and Employment Law Council members, other attorneys who regularly represent AGC chapters or member companies in labor and employment matters (in-house or outside counsel), labor relations managers employed by AGC member contractors or AGC chapters, and AGC chapter executives are invited to attend.

While participation by seasoned attorneys has ensured a sophisticated level of discussion at past symposiums – making the event an annual standard for senior-level construction labor lawyers – the program also offers a rare educational opportunity for junior partners and senior associates to learn more about labor issues in the construction industry.
