Brishen Rogers is Associate Professor of Law at Temple University Beasley School of Law, where he teaches torts, employment discrimination, and a seminar on current issues in labor law. Prior to joining the Temple faculty, Professor Rogers was a Climenko Fellow and Lecturer on Law at Harvard Law School.
Professor Rogers’ scholarship draws on the social sciences and liberal political theory to better understand why and how to regulate labor markets. His current research falls into two streams. The first considers the constitutional and normative dimensions of economic inequality. The second explores how new technologies are both altering the world of work and creating new opportunities for social and political mobilization. He is also a frequent commentator on labor issues in the platform economy.
Professor Rogers received his J.D., cum laude, from Harvard Law School and his B.A., with high distinction from the University of Virginia. Prior to law school, he worked as a community organizer promoting living wage policies and affordable housing, and spent several years organizing workers as part of SEIU’s “Justice for Janitors” campaign.
