Elizabeth Cabraser Gift Launches Consumer Law Center
UC Berkeley School of Law is launching the Berkeley Center for Consumer Law and Economic Justice. The center, established by a $3.5 million gift from Elizabeth J. Cabraser of Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, will deliver research and analysis to fuel meaningful policy change. It will produce white papers, file amicus briefs in consumer cases in appellate courts nationwide, provide input to legislatures and regulatory agencies on behalf of low-income consumers, and increase student opportunities to do hands-on consumer policy work.
“Consumer law is at work all around us, every day. But it’s almost invisible in law schools – This center will actively help protect people in the modern marketplace,” Ms. Cabraser said.
“I am thrilled that we are launching the Berkeley Center for Consumer Law and Economic Justice,” said Berkeley Law Dean Erwin Chemerinsky. “I believe that we can create a preeminent university-based center on consumer law and that it will make a huge difference in people’s lives. I am deeply grateful to Elizabeth Cabraser for making this possible.”
