Sanjukta Paul is assistant professor of law at Wayne State University. She earned her J.D. from Yale Law School, subsequently completing a judicial clerkship on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. For several years she was a litigator and advocate in and around social movements in Los Angeles–on labor, civil rights, and low-wage worker issues–and then a clinical fellow at UCLA School of Law, where she designed and taught the Workers Rights Litigation Clinic. Paul’s current work seeks to illuminate how law organizes economic coordination—focusing on core areas like antitrust, labor and employment, and corporations—and how these legal choices promote or undermine broader normative aims.
She is currently completing a book, Solidarity in the Shadow of Antitrust: Labor and the Legal Idea of Competition (Cambridge University Press), which reinterprets key aspects of the development of antitrust law in relation to labor and workers. Her work has also appeared or will appear in the Yale Law Journal, the UCLA Law Review, Law & Contemporary Problems, and the Berkeley Journal of Employment & Labor Law, among others.
