The Employment and Labor Law Society at FIU Law recently hosted a roundtable discussion featuring Shutts & Bowen attorney Lauren Fernandez and Erin New, a legal liaison for Miami-Dade's Human Rights and Fair Employment Office.
According to ELLS president Deedee Bitran, the forum is designed to connect law students with local employment law attorneys as it is "critical ... to develop those professional relationships early on in their legal careers."
Deedee was a summer associate at Shutts & Bowen earlier this year.
