Legal Shadowing Welcomes Lori A. Brewington, Esquire
On January 28th, the Legal Shadowing Program hosted guest speaker, Lori A. Brewington, Esquire. Senior Attorney at the Wilmington firm of Richards, Layton & Finger, Ms. Brewington specializes in labor and employment law. Ms. Brewington's highly engaging presentation included case studies both local and "ripped from the headlines" on sexual harassment, discrimination in the areas of gender, sexual orientation and age, as well as workplace conflicts between employees. Ms. Brewington analyzed the "grey areas" of what constitutes a "hostile work environment" and explained how attorneys in her specialty are not only involved in prosecution and defense, but also advise companies on the development of employee handbooks to guide professional behavior. Students look forward to shadowing Ms. Brewington in the upcoming months.
