Diana Reddy joined UC Berkeley School of Law as an Assistant Professor in 2023. She teaches Contracts, courses in labor and employment, as well as seminars on organized labor and civil rights, law and political economy, and social movement advocacy.
Diana’s research focuses on the regulation of work as a site where critical choices are made about the relationship between American economic commitments and its democratic ideals. Her recent scholarship has been published in the Yale Law Journal, the Yale Law Journal Forum, and the Emory Law Journal, among others. Some of her shorter pieces are available on the Law and Political Economy blog, examples include “Labor Bargaining and the Common Good” and “Anti-CRT and a ‘Free Market’ in Racial Education.”
Before her return to academia, Diana represented labor unions and workers at the AFL-CIO, Altshuler Berzon LLP, and the California Teachers Association. She received her JD, magna cum laude and Order of the Coif, from NYU School of Law, where she was also a Root-Tilden-Kern scholar. Diana clerked for Judge Theodore McKee on the Third Circuit Court of Appeals and Judge Kimba Wood on the Southern District of New York.
