ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the importance of knowing labor laws for labor and employment lawyers in the U.S. It mentions that even though traditional labor law is not usually practiced by employment lawyers, they, especially younger employment lawyers who need to "issue-spot" for partners, cannot ignore traditional labor law altogether. Knowledge of labor law is necessary because the U.S. National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) covers employees whether they are nonunion or union.
