About César F. Rosado Marzán

Professor Rosado Marzán joined the IIT Chicago-Kent faculty in 2008. Trained as a sociologist and an attorney, Professor Rosado Marzán's research interests lie at the intersection of qualitative empirical research and labor rights. 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 purely doctrinal project (with Professor Sergio Gamonal 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, the UC Irvine Law Review, the Hofstra Labor and Employment Law Journal, the 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.

At IIT Chicago-Kent, Professor Rosado Marzán teaches Contracts, Labor Law, and International and Comparative Labor and Employment Law. He served as a Guest Professor (research professor) of Labor Law in Stockholm University in 2012. Also at Stockholm University, he was a member of the Regulating Markets and Labour Program. He has been a visiting scholar at the American Bar Foundation and at Oñati Institute for the Sociology of Law. He has also been a Princeton University Presidental Fellow and a José Padín Scholar. 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, the Society for Study of Social Problems, the Colegio de Abogados de Puerto Rico, 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.
