Elon Law professor on Facebook Live TODAY to discuss White House efforts to spur wage growth

The social media conversation on November 2, 2016, is the inaugural video chat with Elon Law faculty on legal topics in the news.

Associate Professor David S. Levine, a trade secrecy law scholar who also practiced and teaches contracts and employment law, will be on live video Wednesday, November 2, to discuss White House efforts to promote wage growth by limiting “non-compete” agreements that American businesses require millions of employees to sign each year.

Levine advised the Obama Administration regarding trade secrets and non-compete agreements in a summer conference call with staff from the Office of the Vice President and the Department of the Treasury. Levine will explain the administration’s call to spur competition in the labor market, as outlined in a White House October 25 announcement, and answer questions posed by viewers. 

Anyone on Facebook can follow the conversation at www.facebook.com/elonlaw. This will be Elon Law’s inaugural video chat with faculty on legal topics in the news. The video will be viewable afterward for anyone who visits the Elon Law Facebook page.

Levine is a 2016-2017 Fellow at Princeton University’s Center for Information Technology Policy and an Affiliate Scholar at Stanford Law School’s Center for Internet and Society. He is also the founder and host of Hearsay Culture on KZSU-FM, an information policy, intellectual property law and technology talk show named as a top five podcast in the ABA’s Blawg 100 of 2008.
