Congratulations to Orly Lobel, who has been approved by the faculty at San Diego for tenure.
Orly writes and teaches in the areas of employment law, administrative law, legal theory, torts, consumer law and trade secrets. Before teaching at San Diego, she taught at Yale Law School and served as a fellow at the Harvard University Center for Ethics and the Professions, the Kennedy School of Government's Hauser Center for Non-Profit Research, and the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs. A graduate of Tel Aviv University Law School, she clerked on the Israeli Supreme Court and did her graduate studies at Harvard Law School. Her current research focuses on new models of law and governance in the context of the new economy, the labor market, privatization, and new public management techniques.
Orly is a rigorous and prolific scholar. Some of her recent scholarship includes The Four Pillars of Work Law (Michigan Law Review), The Paradox of 'Extra-Legal' Activism: Critical Legal Consciousness and Transformative Politics (Harvard Law Review), and Citizenship, Organizational Citizenship, and the Laws of Overlapping Obligations (California Law Review).
Few scholars can match the breadth and depth of Orly's scholarship, and she is a fantastic colleague. Congratulations, Orly, on this well-deserved accomplishment!
