Professor Ruben Garcia Featured on FOX5 KVVU-TV

http://law.unlv.edu/faculty/ruben-garcia.htmlRuben J. Garcia is a Professor of Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

On March 26, he was quoted in the FOX5 KVVU-TV article Ex-college athlete: Unionizing 'step in the right direction.'

The article reads, "After being presented evidence that Northwestern's football players spend more time on the field playing and practicing than in the classroom, the National Labor Relations Board ruled Wednesday the student-athletes are, in fact, employees of the university and have the right to unionize."

In response, Professor Garcia said, "The facts, as I've seen them, really do point pretty significantly toward employee status."

A recognized expert in the field of labor and employment law, Professor Garcia teaches Labor Law, Employment Law, Constitutional Law, and Professional Responsibility at the Boyd School of Law. He has been quoted in the Los Angeles Times, the Wall Street Journal, and the Las Vegas Review-Journal, among others, and has appeared on national and local radio and television programs.
