The School of Labor and Employment Relations is pleased to announce the Investiture of Michael H. LeRoy as the LER Alumni Professor. This ceremony will take place at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 12, 2019 in the Wagner Education Center at LER.
Professor LeRoy joined LER in 1988, and is a student favorite. He regularly teaches Government Regulation and Employment Law; Immigration, Employment, and Public Policy, and Collective Bargaining in Sports and Entertainment. He has won the LER Faculty Teaching Excellence Award numerous times and is regularly featured on the University list of Teachers Ranked as Excellent by their class participants. His timely research is regularly referenced in global news outlets and academic journals.
LeRoy holds a BA in Political Science and MA in Labor and Industrial Relations from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, as well as a JD from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
In 1995, the then-Institute alumni met the challenge of Professor Emeritus Martin Wagner's lead gift three-to-one to create the first endowed professorship. This professorship attracts and retains outstanding scholars, enhances the School's stature, and draws top students from throughout the world.
Located at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, LER offers the collegiality of a small close-knit group plus the resources of a world-class university. Alumni have made this professorship possible because they recognize what studying with fine faculty has meant to them. This endowment embodies the spirit of cooperation among alumni, faculty, and friends who have created a lasting resource for excellence at the School of Labor and Employment Relations.
