In this episode... Professor Luke Norris, Associate Professor of Law at the University of Richmond School of Law explains the difference between Labor Law and Employment Law classes and provides an explanation for why each is worth taking in as an upper-level law school class. As an added bonus, Professor Norris explains the Protecting the Right to Organize Act, which the House of Representatives passed earlier in the month. Some key takeaways are... Labor law focuses on the law of collective action and groups, such as unions, in the workplace. Employment law focuses more on individual rights in the workplace. Many schools combine the classes. Regardless of your desired area of practice, both of these classes are worth taking as an upper-level student as a way of deepening your understanding of laws that impact every working adult. About our guest....Professor Luke Norris joined the Richmond Law faculty in 2018. He teaches and writes in the fields of civil procedure, labor and employment law, and constitutional law – with a focus on how these fields intersect with economic and democratic ordering.

In this episode...We speak with Judge, Attorney, Historian, and Professor John Browning about righting historic wrongs. Prof. Browning has dedicated the past few years correcting the racial wrongs of State Bars. Last year, he secured admission for an African American man who aspired to be a lawyer in the 1880s but was denied bar admission because of his race. He is currently petitioning the New York State Bar to admit Ely S. Parker, a Native American War hero and the First Commissioner of Native American Affairs. Some Key Takeaways...State Supreme Courts have only awarded six posthumous bar admissions for those denied admission based on race.Of the 6 posthumous admissions to date, 3 were Asian American men, and 3 were African American.Asian Americans were prevented from becoming lawyers based on federal laws like the Chinese Exclusion Act, while African Americans were discriminated against based on specific laws in states like California and Maryland that barred Blacks from becoming lawyers, as well as by systemic racism.Due to the lack of scholarship into this area and difficulties in locating documentary evidence of such exclusions, no one knows how many aspiring attorneys of color were prevented from entering the legal profession.About our guest... John Browning is a partner at the PlanoTexas office of   Spencer Fane LLP, an Adjunct Professor of Law at Southern Methodist University Dedham School of Law and a former justice for the Fifth Court of Appeals of Texas. The author of five law books and 40 academic articles, Justice Browning is a nationally-recognized thought leader at the intersection of technology and the law whose work has been cited as authority by courts in California, New York, Texas, Florida, Illinois, Tennessee, Maryland, Washington DC, and Puerto Rico. He is also a respected legal historian, particularly in the areas of African American and Native American legal history.-If you would like to contact Prof. Browning regarding his work you may reach him at jbrowning@spencerfane.com-As always, if you have any suggestions for an episode topic, please let us know!You can email leslie@lawtofact.com or tweet @lawtofact.-Find us on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook!Review us on iTunes, your opinion matters!-Want to stay updated on all things Law to Fact?Join our mailing list by visiting www.LawToFact.com. -This episode is sponsored by Kaplan Bar Review.  Getting ready for the bar exam means you’ll need to choose the study program that’s right for you.
