Rebecca Hanner White, dean and J. Alton Hosch Professor at the School of Law, has been named a Fellow of the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers.
Election as a Fellow is deemed the highest recognition by one’s colleagues of sustained outstanding performance in the profession, exemplifying integrity, dedication and excellence. The tenth installation of Fellows was held in Chicago concurrent with the annual meeting of the American Bar Association. With the current installation, the college is represented by more than 790 members in 42 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Canada.
Established in 1995 through an initiative of the Council of the Section of Labor and Employment Law of the American Bar Association, the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers aims to further establish the profession as one uniquely important to the world of labor and employment law, individual rights, collective bargaining and dispute resolution. It operates as a freestanding organization recognizing those who, by long and outstanding service, have distinguished themselves as leaders in the field.
