This course covers all important aspects of the detailed procedures of the board. Unfair labor practices are examined from the filing of the initial charge in the regional office to the final enforcement in the United States Court of Appeals. Procedure in representation cases is also fully explored. The importance of informal procedures is stressed, and the substantive law is examined, especially from the standpoint of tactics. If the instructor allows papers in lieu of examinations, this course may include a qualifying course paper that fulfills one half of the upper level writing requirement. Refer to Academic Rule X — Writing Requirement and Directed Research. The student is also evaluated on the basis of class participation.
