On June 21, 2014, Pete Saucier and Eric Paltell were elected Fellows in the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers. Election as a Fellow is the highest recognition by one’s colleagues of sustained outstanding performance in the profession, exemplifying integrity, dedication and excellence. The nineteenth installation of Fellows will be held on November 8, 2014 in Los Angeles, coincident with the American Bar Association’s Labor and Employment Law Section’s Continuing Legal Education Conference. With the current installation, the College is represented by more than thirteen hundred members in forty-five states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and eight provinces from Canada.
The College of Labor and Employment Lawyers, headquartered in Annapolis, Maryland, was founded in 1995 through an initiative of the Council of The Section of Labor and Employment Law of the American Bar Association. It began as a non-profit professional association honoring the leading lawyers nationwide in the practice of Labor and Employment Law. It has now evolved to become an intellectual and practical resource for the support of the profession and its many audiences. The primary purpose of the College is the recognition of individuals, sharing knowledge and delivering value to the many different groups who can benefit from its value model.
