Fort Lauderdale associate Deedee Bitran participated as a panelist during FIU Law’s Fourth Annual Labor and Employment Panel.
The event was an interactive opportunity for FIU Law students to engage with practitioners while learning more about career opportunities in labor and employment law. The panelists discussed what initially sparked their interest in the field, various war stories, and the latest developments in employment law and offered general advice to the students. As a law student, Deedee helped organize the first annual Labor and Employment Panel at FIU Law.
