Employment Law: Private Ordering and Its Limitations, by Timothy Glynn, Charles Sullivan, Charlotte Alexander, and Rachel Arnow-Richman, is organized around the rights and duties that flow between parties in an employment relationship. Cases, detailed discussion of the facts, and accessible notes and problems examine the laws that are intended to balance the competing interests and contractual obligations of employers and employees. The note materials also encourage students to think critically and creatively about how best to protect the interests of workers or employers. Exercises in planning, drafting, advising, and negotiating develop practice-ready transactional lawyering skills.
