About the CLEL

The Center for Labor and Employment Law at the St. John’s University School of Law creatively and dynamically prepares law students for professional excellence as superb labor and employment lawyers of impeccable ethical integrity. The Center is also an exciting and invaluable resource for practicing lawyers throughout the world, having sponsored major international labor and employment law conferences in Dublin (2000) in London (2006) and Cambridge University (2011).


Under the leadership of David L. Gregory, Executive Director of the Center and the Dorothy Day Professor of Law, with the support of Michael A. Simons, Dean and John V. Brennan Professor of Law and Ethics, and informed by the St. John’s University Mission as a Catholic, Vincentian, Metropolitan, and Global institution with special outreach to the poor, the Center for Labor and Employment Law invites you to join in our important service.


The Center is especially pleased that His Eminence, Edward Cardinal Egan graciously serves as the inaugural Honorary Chairman of the Center.
