Symposium on Technology, Law and Work Set Friday
Saint Louis University’s School of Law will welcome guest speakers from across the

the Organization of Work,” on Friday, March 2, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the John K.

The free symposium features top experts in employment law from across the country
and the globe.

The symposium is open to the public and 5.9 MO CLE (Continuing Legal Education) credits
are available for Missouri attorneys.

The symposium is sponsored by the Wefel Center for Employment Law and the Law Journal.
