Lauren B. Edelman is the Agnes Roddy Robb Professor of Law and Professor of Sociology at the University of California, Berkeley. Before joining the Boalt faculty in 1996, she was a member of the sociology and law faculties at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.

She has also worked in the area of school rights, the intersection of critical race theory and empirical sociolegal studies, dispute resolution, and is beginning work on disabilities in the workplace. Her recent book is Working Law: Courts, Corporations and Symbolic Civil Rights (University of Chicago Press 2016).
