Hunter Pyle to teach Advanced Wage and Hour Seminar at Berkeley Law

December 27, 2017

Hunter Pyle will be teaching a new class at Berkeley Law in Spring 2018:  an advanced seminar on California Wage and Hour Law.

Hunter, along with co-teacher Todd Jackson of Feinberg Jackson Worthman & Wasow, LLP, was asked to teach this class after three years of teaching the Employment Law course to second and third year law students.  The class will cover both substantive and procedural aspects of California wage and hour law, with a particular focus on the most recent developments in the field.  Hunter and Todd are looking forward to developing a syllabus that is practical enough that law students who take the course will be able to hit the ground running after graduation.

Hunter Pyle was quoted in a recent article in the Daily Journal, California’s leading legal newspaper.

The following day, August 18, 2017, Mr. Pyle published an article in the Daily Journal regarding the same topic.  That article is titled “Questions left open in new Spokeo decision.”  It analyzes the Spokeo decision in some detail, and discusses the issues to be resolved in its wake.
