Students at the Institute for Law and the Workplace have the opportunity to participate on student editorial boards for two Chicago-Kent publications devoted to labor and employment law issues:

Illinois Public Employee Relations Report

An online quarterly publication circulated jointly by the Institute and the University of Illinois School of Labor and Employment Relations. It provides current, non-adversarial information to those involved or interested in employer-employee relations in public employment. The authors of bylined articles are responsible for the content and for the opinions and conclusions expressed. Recent Developments, written by the student editorial board, highlights recent legal developments under the Illinois Public and Educational Labor Relations Acts and, where warranted and space permits, other legal developments of interest to the public sector labor relations community.

Current and past issues of the Illinois Public Employee Relations Report are available at no charge through Scholarly Commons at

The Employee Rights and Employment Policy Journal

Diverse perspectives on legal and law-related issues focused on workplace law. Published jointly with the Labor Law Group, the journal is multidisciplinary in approach, welcoming submissions from individuals in all disciplines, including labor and employment law, labor economics, labor relations, employment discrimination, human resources management, sociology, and industrial psychology.

Full articles can be found using such legal search services as Westlaw, Lexis, and HeinOnline. Those interested in submitting articles to the EREPJ should contact the ILW to learn about submission guidelines.
