Until very recently, U.S. manufacturing had been in decline for more than a generation. The great manufacturing juggernaut that defined the country from around the middle of the 19th century until the last quarter of the 20th became a dim memory.But that’s changing. Manufacturing is on the rebound, and the tide is getting stronger. U.S. manufacturers are outpacing their global rivals due to increased domestic demand, an export surge, worker’s rights and pollution problems overseas, cheap energy, and headwinds facing foreign competitors.Manufacturing Business and the Law examines the history of U.S. industry; the laws, regulations, and guidelines governing it now; the legal careers being created and getting those jobs; how to immerse yourself in an industry and become the lawyer your company needs; and where and how manufacturing will continue to grow.
