Reginald Oh brings to the law school nine years of teaching experience and a lengthy roster of publications and presentations in this country and abroad. Professor Oh is a prolific scholar whose work is most often a careful examination of distributive justice, including the ways in which justice succeeds or fails when gender and race are involved.

History, politics, linguistic analysis, and race and gender studies inform articles such as "Interracial Marriage in the Shadows of Jim Crow: Racial Segregation as Racial and Gender Subordination" in the University of California Davis Law Review (2006) and "Discrimination and Distrust: A Critical Linguistic Analysis of the Discrimination Concept" in the University of Pennsylvania Journal of Constitutional Law (2005). "Regulating White Desire," which examines the gendered nature of racial segregation, was published in the Wisconsin Law Review in 2007. "Fear of a Multiracial Planet: Loving’s Children and the Genocide of the White Race" was published in the Fordham Law Review in 2018.

At Cleveland-Marshall, Professor Oh teaches Civil Procedure, a Constitutional Law Seminar on the Fourteenth Amendment, and a seminar on Legal Issues in Education. Professor Oh is also a widely sought and widely traveled lecturer; in a two-year span he spoke at more than 30 national and international conferences. In July 2007, he presented "Race, Racism and Belonging" at the International Congress for Law and Mental Health in Padua, Italy; in March 2007 he lectured on "Reading Brown through Loving: Racial Segregation and the Promotion of White Supremacy" at the University of Iowa College of Law, and "Racial Segregation and the Thirteenth Amendment" at the Tenth Annual Conference for the Association of the Study of Law, Culture, and the Humanities at Georgetown University.
