Since joining the legal practice of McGlinchey Stafford last summer, Bryce Murray ’00 has made an impact as an associate practicing in the labor and employment section of the firm’s New Orleans office.

Murray ran a successful campaign against a Chicago union organization at one of his client’s facilities. He also defends employers against discrimination charges, claims, and lawsuits; makes presentations to and conducts training sessions for employers; and handles union negotiations for an employer.

“Many people look at me as a union buster or a defender of the big, bad corporation,” Murray says. “[But] these attitudes are just stereotypes.”

A government and law graduate, Murray earned his J.D in 2003 from Loyola University School of Law, where he was a member of Alpha Sigma Nu National Jesuit Honor Society, the Alpha Phi Sigma National Criminal Justice Honor Society, and participated in the Loyola Law Clinic’s criminal defense section.

He credits many members of the Lafayette community for impacting him personally and professionally, including Irving Brand ’64, vice president of staff labor relations at NBC, with whom he interned as a student, and Bruce Murphy, Kirby Professor of Government and Law.

“Bruce gave me great flexibility to explore issues and topics, and expanded his classroom forum to accommodate students’ interests,” he says. “I worked closely with him both in the classroom setting and outside the classroom, and he continuously helped me to think outside the box.”

As an EXCEL Scholar with James E. Lennertz, associate professor of government and law, Murray investigated how lawmakers can draw U.S. Congressional, state and local district lines to take power from one voting group and give it to another.
