Lauren Teukolsky was formally inducted as a Fellow of the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers (CLEL) over the weekend at the organization’s Annual Induction Dinner in Seattle, Washington. Ms. Teukolsky’s induction comes after being elected a CLEL fellow in 2022.
CLEL consists of the most accomplished members of the American labor and employment law community. The College was established in 1995 as a non-profit professional association honoring the leading labor and employment lawyers nationwide but has since expanded its function to serve as an educational and professional resource for lawyers, law students, labor unions, advocacy groups, and the general public. According to the College, its purpose is “to promote achievement, advancement, and excellence in the practice of labor and employment law.”
The process of becoming a CLEL Fellow is rigorous. Potential Fellows must first be nominated by two current Fellows in good standing. Nominees are then reviewed and evaluated by Circuit Credentials Committees and the Board of Governors. Only those who have met CLEL’s qualifications for at least 20 years are eligible for election.
