Section Focus

The Labor & Employment Law Section has membership which includes plaintiff and defense labor and employment law attorneys, in-house counsel, public sector/government attorneys, and mediators and arbitrators with experience in labor and employment law. The L&E Section strives to provide labor and employment law attorneys in Houston and surrounding areas with cutting edge and topical seminars for CLE credit through monthly lunch meetings.

The monthly lunch meetings are held on the second Monday of every month at the Magnolia Hotel. In addition to our monthly lunch meetings, the L&E Section offers several social functions for its members, including an annual Holiday Happy Hour, a Spring Social, as well as other networking and educational opportunities.
