Biography

Professor and Associate Dean for Faculty Scholarship Tristin Green specializes in laws affecting inequality, especially employment discrimination law. She brings to her teaching and her scholarship a background in journalism and sociology, and an interest in human relations and in the ways in which laws and contexts shape those relations. She often draws on the social sciences in her work to better understand how discrimination operates and how laws can be better framed and implemented to reduce discrimination. She is a founding member of UNLEASH Equality, founded in 2018 to provide evidence-based legal analysis and policy solutions for sexual harassment and other forms of sex-based harassment and discrimination. Her book, Discrimination Laundering: The Rise of Organizational Innocence and the Crisis of Equal Opportunity Law, was published by Cambridge University Press in 2017.

Professor Green is also the author of numerous articles and essays, including “Was Harassment Law a Mistake?: The Stories We Tell” (Yale Law Journal Forum, 2018), “Social Closure Discrimination (Berkeley Journal of Employment and Labor Law, 2018), with Catherine Albiston, “Racial Emotion in the Workplace” (University of Southern California Law Review, 2013), “It’s Not You, It’s Me: Assessing an Emerging Relationship Between Law and Social Science” (Connecticut Law Review, 2013), “The Future of Systemic Disparate Treatment Law” (Berkeley Journal of Employment and Labor Law, 2011), “Race and Sex in Organizing Work: ‘Diversity,’ Discrimination, and Integration” (Emory Law Journal, 2010), “Insular Individualism: Employment Discrimination Law after Ledbetter v. Goodyear” (Harvard Civil Rights — Civil Liberties Law Review, 2008), and “Discrimination-Reducing Measures at the Relational Level” (Hastings Law Journal, 2008), with Alexandra Kalev. She is also co-author with Herma Hill Kay of a casebook, Sex-Based Discrimination: Text, Cases, and Materials, Seventh Edition (2011).
