Roberto (Rob) De Luca is a researcher, writer, and lawyer (currently non-practicing).
Most recently, Rob has worked as a labour lawyer at a union-side boutique in Vancouver, British Columbia (where his practice primarily involved working with co-counsel on complex arbitrations and appellate proceedings) and as a staff lawyer and then director at the Canadian Civil Liberties Association (CCLA). At CCLA, Rob directed interventions on Charter issues at all levels of court, including several interventions at the Supreme Court of Canada, and regularly represented the organization before administrative boards and parliamentary committees, and in its varied advocacy efforts on civil liberties at the international level.
Rob also has several years of experience as an educator. He worked as a university instructor prior to law school and has since led lectures and seminars on a wide range of legal issues in high schools, universities, law schools, and at community events.
Rob completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Alberta and holds a JD from Stanford Law School (2014) and a PhD in Government from the University of Texas at Austin (2010).
