César F. Rosado Marzán
Assistant Professor of Law
Professor Rosado Marzán joined the IIT Chicago-Kent faculty in 2008. He teaches Contracts, Labor Law, and International and Comparative Labor and Employment Law. Professor Rosado-Marzán served as a Guest Professor of Labor Law in Stockholm University in the fall of 2012.
Professor Rosado Marzán's current research interests lie at the intersection of labor rights and social science research. He spends significant time in the field observing and interviewing people who "make law" every day. For example, in two different projects he interviewed labor lawyers, union officers, and management attorneys in Puerto Rico, Europe, and the United States to understand how they use law and "law-like" norms to build or challenge labor unions. In another project he observed labor inspectors and labor judges in Chile interact with employers and employees to understand how employment law is enforced in that country.
Professor Rosado Marzán advises the Chicago-Kent Institute for Law and the Workplace and the Masters in Work Law at the Adolfo Ibañez University Law School in Chile. He is a member of the Regulating Labour and Markets Programme ("ReMarkLab") at Stockholm University, a project funded by the Swedish Council for Working Life and Social Research. He is also a Research Scholar of the Center for Labor and Employment Law at New York University School of Law. He has been an active member of the American Sociological Association, the Law & Society Association, and other professional associations.
