A leading authority on the legal and policy implications of workplace bullying and abusive work environments, Yamada launched the Project on Workplace Bullying and Discrimination and serves as an affiliated scholar with the Workplace Bullying & Trauma Institute in Bellingham, Washington. He is also a member of the national board and workers’ rights committee of Americans for Democratic Action and is the founding director of the Rappaport Honors Program in Law and Public Policy at Suffolk Law School.

Suffolk University Law School was founded in 1906 and has grown to be one of the largest law schools in the country. The Law School is located in the legal and business center of Boston, Massachusetts. In 1999, the newly built Sargent Hall was dedicated and is the most technologically advanced law school of its kind, exemplified by Internet access at every seat in the classrooms, library, dining room and common areas. The core curriculum provides a strong legal foundation for more than 200 upper-level elective courses as well as four specialty concentrations in the JD program and five joint-degree programs that combine law with business, public administration, international economics, finance and criminal justice.
