April 18, 2018 — The Health Law & Policy Institute at the University of Houston Law Center recently hosted a workshop to give junior faculty the opportunity to present their work-in-progress and discuss it with colleagues from across the country.

The day-long session, co-sponsored by the Federalist Society, focused on employment law and was held in the HLPI library.
