The Robson Hall Employment and Labour Law Club provides students with the opportunity to meet and engage with lawyers practicing in this area of law through our various guest lectures that are hosted monthly. Our lectures focus on the different areas of practice in labour and employment and last year we had lawyers from both union and management side give presentations, and we were fortunate to have the Chair of the Manitoba Labour Board give a presentation as well. Also, our club will be sending two teams to participate in the NHL/NHLPA Salary Arbitration Competition hosted in Toronto! The competition simulates the salary arbitration procedure found in the NHLPA’s collective bargaining agreement, and requires students to exercise their written and oral advocacy skills.
