The College of Labor and Employment Lawyers was established in 1995 through an initiative of the Council of The Section of Labor and Employment Law of the American Bar Association. The idea was to further this profession in all its aspects 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. With the current installation, the College is represented by more than fourteen hundred members in forty-six states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and eight Canadian provinces.
