In addition, each issue contains notes and comments written by students examining cases and developments in the field.

About the Journal
The Hofstra Labor & Employment Law Journal, currently in its twenty-eighth volume, publishes a compilation of articles written by some of the nation's most prominent labor and employment law scholars and practitioners. The Journal is widely regarded as one of the premier authorities in the fields of labor and employment law and as one of the preeminent specialty journals in the US.
We have recently published articles by William B. Gould IV, former Chairman of the NLRB and Charles A. Beardsley Professor of Law at Stanford Law School; Professor Vivian Berger of Columbia Law School; Professor Charles Carver of George Washington Law School; and the late Professor David E. Feller of the University of California School of Law at Berkeley.
Recently, the Journal held a symposium to commemorate "The 40th Anniversary of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964." The written symposium issue included an introduction by Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg; personal testimonials from two landmark sex discrimination plaintiffs, Ann Hopkins and Beth Faragher; and articles by Professors Robert Belton of Vanderbilt Law School and Ronald Turner of Houston Law Center.
In addition, the Journal enjoys the input and full support of our faculty advisors, Law School administration and our National Advisory Board, composed of leading academics and practitioners from across the country, including Professor Samuel Estreicher of New York University School of Law, Professor Paul Secunda of Marquette University Law School, and Alan Koral, President of the New York State Bar Association Labor and Employment Law Section.
