Professor Green Elected College of Labor & Employment Lawyers Fellow

July 1, 2014

Texas A&M School of Law professor Michael Z. GreenFORT WORTH, Texas -- The College of Labor and Employment Lawyers announced Texas A&M School of Law professor Michael Z. Green as a Fellow of the College Class of 2014.

As a newly elected Fellow, the word that comes to mind for Green on this achievement is “humble.”

“It’s humbling,” he said, “to have my peers and people I admire decide that I should become a Fellow. It’s humbling to be noticed and appreciated by my peers.”

Election as a Fellow is the highest recognition by colleagues of sustained outstanding performance in the profession, exemplifying integrity, dedication and excellence.

Green will be inducted as a Fellow Nov. 8 in Los Angeles, during the American Bar Association (ABA) Labor and Employment Law Section’s Continuing Legal Education Conference. He joins more than 1,300 College members in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and eight providences in Canada.

Dean Andrew Morriss commends this prestigious honor: "This is a well-deserved recognition of Professor Green as a national expert in this key area. Labor and employment law touches virtually everyone and our students benefit enormously from leaders like Professor Green."

The College was established in 1995 through an initiative of the Council of The Section of Labor and Employment Law of the ABA. It operates as a freestanding organization recognizing those who, by long and outstanding service, have distinguished themselves as leaders in the field.

“As a law professor, part of what you do is you provide expertise. Labor and employment law is like that for me. I love it. Knowing that others who are doing the same thing recognize you – that’s gratifying,” Green said. He credits this accomplishment chiefly to the support of his colleagues and faculty at the law school.

Green frequently presents his expertise at ABA meetings and regularly publishes papers and scholarly works. View or download his publications. For more information, consult his faculty profile.
