Professor Secunda joined the Marquette University Law School in the summer of 2008. Previous to that time, he taught six years at the University of Mississippi School of Law. He teaches employment discrimination, employee benefits, labor law, employment law, civil procedure, disability law, and seminars in special education law, global issues in employee benefits, and public employment law.

Professor Secunda is the author of over three dozen books, treatises, articles, and shorter writings. His recent articles appear in the UCLA Law Review, Fordham Law Review, Hastings Law Review, Wisconsin Law Review, Colorado Law Review, and U.C. Davis Law Review, among other publications. He is also the author, along with Rick Bales and Jeff Hirsch, of the treatise, Understanding Employment Law, along with Sam Estreicher and Rosalind Connor, of the case book, Global Issues in Employee Benefits Law, and of the forthcoming Henderson and Secunda Labor Law: Cases and Comment (3d ed. 2010).

His legal scholarship primarily focuses on the civil liberties and civil rights of employees, with a focus on public employee constitutional speech, privacy, and associational rights. He has also written on the rights of special education children, the remedial inadequacies of ERISA, and innovative remedial approaches to group employment discrimination claims. His current projects concern the application of culture cognition theory to the use of striker replacements in labor law and the need to update the AALS Statement on Good Practices concerning the Responsibilities of Scholars.

Professor Secunda is the current national Chair of the AALS Section on Labor Relations and Employment Law, the past chair of the AALS Section on Employment Discrimination Law, and the Chair-elect of the AALS Section on Employee Benefits. He is also a co-editor of the Workplace Prof Blog, the administrator for the empdiscr listserv, and frequently appears in the national media on labor and employment law issues.
