Green-Collar Communities Clinic

Berkeley Law’s Green-Collar Communities Clinic (GC3) played a key role in pushing through AB 816, a new California bill that helps facilitate the creation of worker-run businesses. The law removes barriers to creating new cooperatives that are owned and operated by their employees. It caps a two-year effort by GC3, the nation’s only legal clinic focused on community-building through cooperative enterprise. Sushil Jacob ’11 leads the clinic, which is part of the East Bay Community Law Center.
