Alison D. Morantz文集
Assistant Professor of Law
Stanford Law School
A scholar whose research has explored the impact of occupational safety and health laws, the law and economics of workplace regulation, the comparative effectiveness of state and federal enforcement, and legal history, Alison Morantz seeks to parse the real-world effects of legal and policy reform. Much of her current empirical research examines policy-relevant aspects of occupational safety and health, such as the effect of devolving the enforcement of regulations from federal to state officials, and how differences in state laws can affect the frequency of workers’ compensation claims. Before joining the Stanford Law School faculty in 2004, Professor Morantz was an associate at Pyle, Rome, Lichten & Ehrenberg, working as a union-side labor lawyer and antidiscrimination advocate. She clerked for Judge Patti B. Saris of the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts.
