Conference Description

Come to Minneapolis this fall, and learn the latest developments in labor law and labor arbitration.

The place to learn is where the teachers are among the top tier of labor arbitrators, the materials tackle the tough issues, the key questions are answered, and the instruction is practical so you can put the training to use.


We welcome you to Minneapolis to learn with the best.

The faculty members are among the top teachers in the field, in addition to being active labor arbitrators. Richard Adelman was a teaching fellow at Stanford, a practicing lawyer in New York City and for the past 20 years one of the most sought-after labor arbitrators on the East coast. Steve Befort teaches at the University of Minnesota Law School, is the past editor of the ABA’s highly respected journal on Labor & Employment Law, and a nationally known labor arbitrator. Harry Graham spent his teaching career at Cleveland State University, in addition to an ongoing stellar career as a labor arbitrator. Jeff Jacobs started as a labor attorney and is now a distinguished labor arbitrator. Based in Minneapolis, he has heard thousands of cases. Finally, Jeanne Vonhof has over 20 years of experience, with umpireships on several prominent panels, including in the airlines, steel and education. She has also taught at Indiana University.
