Sarah Dadush


Sarah Dadush, Professor of Law and Founding Director, RCP, Rutgers Law School

Sarah leads RCP’s work to transform the role of contracts in upholding human rights in global supply chains. She is passionate about developing practical contractual tools that operationalize the shared-responsibility principles enshrined in the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs) and the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises.


Sarah co-founded RCP in 2022 to implement the responsible contracting Toolkit, starting with the MCCs 2.0, which she helped develop as a leading member of the ABA Business Law Section Working Group to Draft Human Rights Protections in International Supply Contracts. She continues to work closely on the development and implementation of new tools, including by serving as a member of the European Model Contract Clauses for Responsible and Sustainable Supply Chains (EMCs) Working Group and as Co-Chair of the Responsible Investor Model Clauses (RIMCs) sub-committee of the ABA's Corporate Social Responsibility Committee. 


Sarah also teaches and writes in the areas of contracts and business and human rights as a Professor at Rutgers Law School, where she has been on the faculty since 2013 (tenured in 2019). She is also a member of the advisory board of Cornell University’s Global Labor Institute. Prior to these endeavors, Sarah served as Legal Counsel for the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), a specialized agency of the United Nations based in Rome, a Fellow at NYU Law School’s Institute for International Law and Justice, and an associate attorney at the global law firm, Allen & Overy. She received her J.D. and LL.M. in International and Comparative Law from Duke University School of Law in 2004.
