    Samuel Estreicher is Dwight D. Opperman Professor of Law at New York University School of Law, director of its Center for Labor and Employment and co-director of its Opperman Institute of Judicial Administration. He has published several books including casebooks in labor law and employment discrimination and employment law; written treatises in employment law and in labor law; edited global issues in labor law, global issues in employment law, global issues in employment discrimination law, and global issues in employee benefits law; edited conference volumes on sexual harassment, employment ADR processes, and cross-global human resources; and authored over 100 articles in professional and academic journals. He received his A.B. from Columbia College, his M.S. (Industrial Relations) from Cornell University and his J.D. from Columbia Law School, where he was editor-in-chief of the Columbia Law Review. After clerking for the late Harold Leventhal of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, practicing for a year with a union-side law firm, and then clerking for the late Lewis F. Powell, Jr. of the U.S. Supreme Court, Estreicher joined the NYU faculty in 1978. He is the former Secretary of the Labor and Employment Law Section of the American Bar Association, a former chair of the Committee on Labor and Employment Law of the Association of the Bar for the City of New York, and chief reporter of the new Restatement of Employment Law, sponsored by the American Law Institute. He has delivered named lectureships at UCLA, Chicago-Kent, Case Western and Cleveland State law schools, testified twice before Secretary of Labor Reich's and Secretary of Commerce Brown's Commission on the Future of U.S. Worker-Management Relations, and has run over 100 workshops for federal and state judges, U.S. Department of Labor lawyers, NLRB lawyers, EEOC lawyers, court law clerks, employment mediators and practitioners generally. Among his many teaching offerings, he has started NYU Law's Supreme Court Litigation Clinic.

    He is also of counsel to Jones Day in their labor and employment and appellate practice groups. His practice focuses on the wide range of issues affecting the employment relationship, including designing ADR systems, training supervisors for performance-based management and employee involvement initiatives, advising clients in OFCCP, EEO and labor relations compliance and representing clients in individual, global HR management, and class EEO and Wage and Hour litigation.

    Mr. Estreicher's appellate practice includes victory in the Supreme Court in the Circuit City v. Adams litigation, broadening the availability of employment arbitration; victory in the Second Circuit overturning an interest arbitration award in The Daily News litigation; and amicus representation (before the NLRB and in the Supreme Court) of the American Civil Liberties Union, Cato Institute, the Center for Public Resources, DaimlerChrysler, Ford, GM, the US Chamber of Commerce, the Society for Human Resources Management, the National Association of Manufacturers, the Black Alliance for Educational Options, the American Jewish Committee, and the Council for Employment Law Equity. Mr. Estreicher is also a member of the arbitration/mediation panels of the American Arbitration Association and Center for Public Resources, and is a Fellow of the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers. He has been recognized in Human Resources Executive, Superlawyers and Best Lawyers in America publications.

    Michael C. Harper

    Michael C. Harper, Professor of Law and Barreca Labor Relations Scholar at Boston University School, is a leading authority in the area of labor, employment, and employment discrimination law. Professor Harper has been engaged by the study of these fields since joining the faculty in 1978. He stresses that the law governing employment is critical to the organization of society and the setting of social priorities. He notes that students are both motivated by the human narratives in litigated employment cases and also challenged by the complex laws and regulations governing the field.

    Professor Harper has co-authored several major casebooks, both in Employment Discrimination and Employment Law and in Labor Law. Professor Harper is the author of many law review articles and book chapters on a broad variety of labor and employment law topics, including age discrimination in employment, the scope of bargaining, consumer boycotts, and the allocation of decision making authority between federal and state courts and between the Labor Board and private arbitrators. He has published in a wide array of journals, including the Harvard Law Review, the Yale Law Journal, the Virginia Law Review, the Pennsylvania Law Review, and the Michigan Law Review. One of his major recent articles, &"Judicial Control of the National Labor Relations Board’s Lawmaking” was published in the Boston University Law Review.

    Professor Harper is now serving as a reporter for the American Law Institute's Restatement of Employment Law. He is the primary author of a chapter that promises to clarify the boundaries of the employment relationship regulated by federal and state law. Early in his career, Professor Harper clerked for Judge J. Skelly Wright of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit and served as staff attorney and director of the Student Internship Program at the Center for Law and Social Policy in Washington, D.C.

    In addition to teaching classes in labor law, employment law and administrative law, Professor Harper offers a popular seminar examining law and sports and is now teaching civil procedure. A life-long connoisseur of American and English literature, he also has an interest in law and literature.
