Introducing Guest Blogger Paul Secunda
I’m very pleased to introduce Professor Paul Secunda, who will guest blog with us this month. Paul is a law professor at the University of Mississippi School of Law. He joined the law faculty in the summer of 2002. He teaches employment law, employment discrimination law, employee benefits, labor law, civil procedure, school law, higher education law, and special education law. He will be joining the faculty of Marquette Law School this fall.
Paul’s recent articles appear in the UCLA Law Review, Wisconsin Law Review, Colorado Law Review, U.C. Davis Law Review, Florida State University Law Review, Villanova Law Review, Kentucky Law Review, Duke Journal of Gender Law & Policy, and the Comparative Labor Law & Policy Journal. He is also the author, along with Professors Rick Bales and Jeff Hirsch, of the treatise, Understanding Employment Law, and, along with Sam Estreicher, of the forthcoming case book, Global Issues in Employee Benefits Law.
His legal scholarship primarily focuses on the civil liberties and civil rights of employees, with a focus on public employee speech, privacy, and associational issues. He has also written on innovative remedial approaches to group employment discrimination claims and the dynamics of administrative agency adjudication in the labor law context. His current project concerns the lack of employee benefit protection for employee participants under ERISA’s remedial and preemption scheme.
His publications include:
* Whither the Pickering Rights of Federal Employees?, 79 U. Colo. L. Rev. (2008)
* The Solomon Amendment, Expressive Associations, and Public Employment, 54 UCLA L. Rev. 1767 (2007)
* At the Crossroads of Title IX and a New ‘IDEA’: Why Bullying Need Not Be A ‘Normal Part of Growing Up’ for Special Education Children, 12 Duke J. L. & Policy 1 (2005)
