Veena Dubal

University of California, Hastings College of Law
Fellow, 2022-23

During her time at CASBS, Veena Dubal will complete a book project that presents a sweeping theoretical reappraisal of how low-income immigrant and racial minority workers experience and respond to shifting technologies and regulatory regimes. The manuscript draws upon a decade of interdisciplinary ethnographic research on taxi and ride-hail regulations and worker organizing and advocacy in San Francisco.

Dubal’s research focuses broadly on law, technology, and precarious workers, combining legal and empirical analysis to explore issues of labor and inequality. She has written numerous articles in top law and social science journals and publishes essays in the popular press. Her research has been cited internationally in numerous legal decisions, including by the California Supreme Court, and her research and commentary are regularly featured in media outlets, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times, NPR, CNN, etc.

Dubal is professor of law and the Harry and Lilian Hastings Chair at the University of California at Hastings, a former Fulbright fellow, and mother of three children. She is the recipient of awards for both her scholarship and previous work as a public interest lawyer.
