In 2009, the University of Minnesota Law School became the new editorial home of the ABA Journal of Labor & Employment Law (formerly The Labor Lawyer), the publication of the American Bar Association Section of Labor and Employment Law.

Published since 1985, the journal provides balanced discussions of current developments in labor and employment law to meet the practical needs of attorneys, judges, administrators, and the public. The journal’s circulation includes the 27,000 members of the ABA Section of Labor and Employment Law.

Editorial work on the journal is a faculty-student collaboration. Faculty co-editors are Stephen F. Befort (’74) and Laura J. Cooper.
