About César F. Rosado Marzán

Professor Rosado Marzán is the Chicago-Kent 2017 Norman and Edna Freehling Scholar. He will also be a visiting professor at the University of Iowa College of Law during the fall 2017 term.

Trained as a sociologist and an attorney, Professor Rosado Marzán's research interests lie at the intersection of qualitative empirical research and law. His current project, a case study of a Chicago worker center, attempts to understand how worker centers may contribute to a moral project that helps to reduce wage and income inequality. He is also working on a doctrinal project (with Professor Sergio Gamonal C. of the Adolfo Ibañez University of Chile), which attempts to provide fresh meaning to U.S. work law through so-called Latin American principles of work law.

He is the author (with Sergio Gamonal C.) of El Principio de Protección del Trabajador en el Derecho Norteamericano (Legal Publishing/Thomson Reuters) and editor (with Meron Kebede) of The Regulation of Compensation: Proceedings of the New York University 66th Annual Conference on Labor (Lexis 2014). His work has appeared in law reviews, law journals, and edited books in the United States, Europe, and Latin America, including the Minnesota Law Review, UC Irvine Law Review, Hofstra Labor and Employment Law Journal, International Journal of Comparative Labour Law and Industrial Relations, Revista de Derecho Laboral y Seguridad Social, Revista del Colegio de Abogados de Puerto Rico, among others.

He has been a guest professor at Stockholm University's Law Department, a visiting professor at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, and a visiting scholar at the American Bar Foundation and the Oñati Institute for the Sociology of Law. He was a member of the Regulating Markets and Labour Program at Stockholm University, which funded a number of his projects. He was a Princeton University Presidential Fellow and a José Padín Scholar at Haverford College. He is an active member of the Law & Society Association, where he has served in a number of committees and research collaborative networks, the American Sociological Association, the International Sociological Association, and the Puerto Rican Bar Association of Illinois, among other professional associations. Before arriving at IIT Chicago-Kent, Professor Rosado Marzán practiced union-side labor law in New York and Puerto Rico.
