Tenth Annual National Law Students
Workers' Rights Conference

The Peggy Browning Fund is a nonprofit corporation established in memory of Margaret A. Browning, a prominent labor attorney and member of the National Labor Relations Board. President Clinton appointed Peggy to the NLRB in 1994, and she served in that position until her death in February, 1997.

The Fund's mission is to provide law students with diverse, challenging work and educational experiences in the area of workers' rights. Such unique and positive opportunities will both increase student understanding of workers' needs as well as promote their entry into the practice of public interest labor law.

Every year, the Fund hosts a national conference for law students on the rights of working people. This year, the conference will take place on October 17 & 18, 2008, and will be held at the National Labor College in Silver Spring, MD. The conference brochure and FAQs provide valuable information and registration details.
