What Is RU LERA?

The Rutgers University Labor and Employment Relations Association (RU LERA) is a professional non-profit organizational chapter of the Labor and Employment Relations Association. Since its founding as the Industrial Relations Research Association in 1947, National LERA has provided a unique forum where the views of representatives of labor, management, government, academics, advocates and neutrals are welcome. LERA features over 3,000 members spread across 50+ chapters, and RU LERA remains the only student-run chapter. Since its founding in the fall of 2014, RU LERA has helped equip students with the knowledge, perspective and networking skills to make an impact in various segments of labor and employment relations.
