We are pleased to announce that our partners Camille Olson and Richard Lapp will be speaking on Dukes v. Wal-Mart at SHRM’s 2011 Conference & Exposition in Las Vegas. As counsel to SHRM and the authors of the highly influential amicus brief filed on the organization’s behalf in Dukes, it is fitting that Camille and Rich were the only two lawyers in the country tapped to address the conference on this blockbuster decision. Their presentation is scheduled for Wednesday, June 29.

Their presentation, “Best HR Practices: Reviewing the Impact of Dukes v. Wal-Mart Stores,” will provide an overview and insights into the case, which as many of our blog readers know, was heralded as the most important employment decision in recent memory and anticipated by employers across the nation for its potentially game-changing Rule 23 and human resources-related implications.

We congratulate Camille and Rich on the key role they will play in this major HR industry event, for which more than 13,000 HR professionals are registered, and know that they will be in good company: other keynote speakers to include Virgin Group founder and president Sir Richard Branson, editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post Ariana Huffington and actor Michael J. Fox. If you are attending, be sure to stop by and say hello.
