Biography

A scholar whose research has explored the law and economics of protective labor regulation, intellectual and developmental disability (I/DD), and workers’ compensation, Alison D. Morantz seeks to parse the real-world effects of legal and policy reform. Her recent work has examined the relationship between ownership status and the quality of care in facilities serving the intellectually disabled, how statistical techniques can be used to target the most hazardous workplaces, the effects of unionization on mine safety, and the law and economics of workers’ compensation.

Morantz is the Director of the Stanford Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Law and Policy Project (SIDDLAPP), an interdisciplinary initiative examining the rights and welfare of individuals with I/DD. She is also a Senior Fellow of the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research (SIEPR), and has been the principal investigator of multi–year research projects funded by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health. In the spring of 2010, she was one of four experts appointed, at Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis’s request, to a federal panel that provided an independent analysis of the Mine Safety and Health Administration’s internal review following the explosion at Upper Big Branch Mine on April 5, 2010, that claimed 29 miners’ lives.

After receiving a BA summa cum laude from Harvard in 1993, Morantz earned an MSc from Oxford University on a Rhodes Scholarship; a JD from Yale Law School; and a PhD in economics from Harvard University. She clerked for Judge Patti B. Saris of the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts, and worked as a union–side labor lawyer and antidiscrimination advocate in Boston, before joining the Stanford Law School faculty in 2004.

Career History
James & Nancy Kelso Professor of Law, Director of Siddlapp & Senior Fellow, Stanford Institute of Economic Policy Research
Current

Stanford began offering a curriculum in legal studies in 1893, when the university engaged its first two law professors. One was Benjamin Harrison, former President of the United States, who delivered a landmark series of lectures on the Constitution. The other was Nathan Abbott, who served as head of the nascent law program. Abbott assembled a small faculty to which he imparted a standard of rigor and excellence that endures to this day.In an effort to acknowledge the emerging professional nature of the department, Stanford's Board of Trustees passed a resolution in 1908 to substitute the term 'law school' for 'law department,' though technically the law program remained a department within the university.The law school was at the forefront of efforts to institute the California Bar exam, which was added to the requirements to practice law in California in 1919. The law school was accredited by the American Bar Association in 1923, the year the ABA began certifying law schools.
