César F. Rosado Marzán
Assistant Professor of Law
Professor Rosado Marzán joined the IIT Chicago-Kent faculty in 2008. Before arriving at Chicago-Kent, he was an associate attorney at the law firm of Levy Ratner, PC in New York City. He also practiced in Puerto Rico in the offices of Torres & Velaz. He represented labor unions on all aspects of organizing, representation, and collective bargaining matters and worked in an employment discrimination class action case.
At Chicago-Kent he teaches Contracts, Labor Law, and International and Comparative Labor and Employment Law.
Professor Rosado Marzán's current research interests lie at the intersection of international and comparative work law 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, a unique organization in the law school that connects Chicago-Kent to the practicing bar. To fund and help disseminate his research internationally, Professor Rosado Marzán joined 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. Professor Rosado Marzán serves as a member of the Academic Advisory Committee of the Masters in Work Law at the Adolfo Ibañez University Law School in Chile, which gives him an opportunity to contribute to the development of practicing lawyers and judges in that country.
Professor Rosado Marzán is the father of two small sons. He is an aspiring yogi and a weekend runner with many good excuses to skip his run.
Professor Rosado Marzán was on research leave June-December of 2012 at the Institute for Social Private Law at Stockholm University. He is on sabbatical for the spring 2013 semester.
