Mock Grievance Hearing at the Law School

On Friday, November 9 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in WB 102, attorneys from the Office of the Attorney General in Richmond will conduct a mock disciplinary hearing. Students attending the hearing will be joined by managers from a variety of state agencies.

Students who participate will be offered the opportunity to serve as volunteer advocates for state employees at real grievance hearings during the spring semester. However, attending the hearing creates no obligation to participate in future representation of state employees. Come and see how the Commonwealth's version of a just cause regime operates in practice.  The hearing involves an interesting scenario that explores, among other issues, the tension between religious harassment law and protections for the free exercise of religion.

The Public Service Center-SL 249 is taking sign-ups on a first come, first served basis. There are 25 slots for the hearing available to second and third year students. First year students will be invited to register if space remains after upper class students have had an opportunity to sign up. Whether you are interested in a pro bono practice opportunity or just curious about employee grievance systems, this is a great chance to get some real world exposure to employment law.
