Matthew Dimick writes and teaches at the intersection of labor markets, firms and states. He is interested in how labor market institutions – such as labor and employment legislation, collective bargaining, and trade union and employer associations – influence income distribution and efficiency in the labor market, the governance and financial performance of firms, and the political economy of democracy and the welfare state in developed countries. He teaches courses on labor law, employment law and corporations.
Before coming to SUNY Buffalo Law School, Dimick was a law
research fellow at Georgetown University Law Center. He holds a
Ph.D. in sociology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a
J.D. from Cornell Law School. After law school and before graduate
school, he worked for the Service Employees International Union in
Washington, D.C. Dimick is also a fellow at the Kalmanovitz
Initiative for Labor and the Working Poor, at Georgetown
