Bruce N. Cameron, J.D.

Reed Larson Professor of Labor Law

Bio

Professor Bruce Cameron teaches Religion in the Workplace, Labor Law and administers the Right to Work Practicum. Prior to coming to Regent, he spent over 30 years litigating religious freedom and constitutional law cases in the employment context. During that time, he never lost a Title VII religious accommodation case in court. He counseled employees in virtually every state as to their rights and formally represented clients in administrative or judicial proceedings in at least 25 states.


Cameron is the author of 28 published articles on the topics of religion, Constitutional law, the rights of religious dissenters, and labor law. He is the co-author, along with Thomas Haggard, of the upcoming third edition of Understanding Employment Discrimination (LexisNexis/Carolina Press). He co-authored a section of a judicial handbook entitled A Judicial Guide To Labor and Employment Law published by Lawyers Weekly Publications. He is also the author of the weekly Bible studies on the popular web site www.GoBible.org.


Cameron was an Andrews Scholar, an intern with the U.S. Attorney's Office, and a member of the U.S. Department of Justice Honors Program. He is a member of the Virginia State Advisory Committee to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights (2015-2019); the Federalist Society, the Christian Legal Society, several state bars, and a number of federal bars, including the Bar of the U.S. Supreme Court. He has appeared frequently on television and radio shows, including appearances on Dr. Dobson's Focus on the Family. His hobbies over the years are sports cars, motorcycles, sailing, and studying and teaching the Bible.

Publications

Publications and Litigation:


With the consent of the law school, Professor Cameron focuses on cutting-edge litigation, instead of academic writing, in an effort to inform the opinions of judges and shape the course of employee rights.  


Cameron is on staff with the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation and has been part of its litigation team for more than 43 years. This team has litigated every United States Supreme Court case in the past 40 years dealing with employees and compulsory unionism, and at least 90 percent of all published decisions in federal and state courts on this topic. 


He directs the Right to Work Practicum at Regent University and the Foundation’s Freedom of Conscience Project. Regent students have the opportunity to work with him on litigation through the Practicum.


Although his role varies from informal consultant to counsel of record, Cameron is involved in the defense of the recent changes in the collective bargaining laws in Wisconsin, the defense of the new Indiana and Michigan Right to Work laws, and the battle to prevent the National Labor Relations Board from asserting jurisdiction over religiously affiliated schools. In Cameron’s area of specialization, in which he helps employees obtain an accommodation of their religious beliefs against supporting a labor union, he assists more employees than any other lawyer in the United States.


Current Projects:


  • Patterson v. Walgreen
    AMICUS BRIEF
    This case, which is waiting on a review decision by the U.S. Supreme Court, seeks to advance the law on religious accommodation in the workplace.

  • IUOE Local 370 v. Wasden
    AMICUS BRIEF
    Organized labor filed a series of cases in a number of federal courts attempting to invalidate state Right to Work laws. Right to Work laws protect employees' right to choose to refrain from supporting a labor union. The union argument is that Right to Work laws violate the Takings Clause of the U.S. Constitution. Because of the nature of these suits, the attorney generals of the target states defend their Right to Work laws. This is a friend of the court brief to bolster the vigorous defense of the Idaho Right to Work law made by the Idaho Attorney General. Prof. Cameron has as his local counsel a former Idaho Attorney General. This is federal court litigation.
