About the Organization

The National Employment Law Council (NELC) is a not for profit organization that was created in 1997 to enrich the careers and lives of attorneys of color who represent management in the field of labor and employment law. Over the last twenty years, NELC has fulfilled this mission by focusing on five key strategic priorities for its members:

Education – NELC provides continuing legal education programs to enhance the substantive knowledge of its members and facilitates the introduction of practitioners to each other.
Communication – NELC provides a communication medium for the exchange of ideas, career, and other networking opportunities.
Employers – NELC provides a mechanism for corporate and institutional employers to identify members to serve as their outside counsel.
Members - NELC provides opportunities for its members to develop and present their experience and knowledge through speaking and writing engagements.
Mentoring – NELC provides mentoring to emerging management-side labor and employment attorneys.
By focusing on these priorities over the last 20 years, NELC is now comprised of hundreds of leading labor and employment defense attorneys, including many from majority and minority-owned law firms and corporate law departments. Recognizing the need to facilitate the success of younger practitioners, in 2011, the NELC Academy was launched to cater to the development of promising attorneys of color with less than four years of labor and employment defense experience.

In addition to smaller regional conferences, the NELC Annual Conference is the organization’s signature event and features presentations on cutting edge labor and employment topics by experts in the field.
