The National Employment Law Council ("N-E-L-C") invites applications for selection as Fellows to the 2024 NELC Academy scheduled for May 1 - 3, 2024 in Chicago, IL at the Marriott Marquis. NELC is a non-profit organization charged with enriching minority bar members who represent management in the field of labor and employment law.

All NELC Academy Fellows will have direct interaction with in-house attorneys and leading minority labor and employment defense lawyers from across the country, and will be partnered with an experienced attorney mentor. Space in the 2024 NELC Academy will be limited to a maximum of 30 participants and is expected to be highly competitive. Great weight is given to personal statements and letters of recommendation.
