Amelia Miazad is the founding Director and Senior Research Fellow of the Business in Society Institute at Berkeley Law. The institute studies the changing role that companies are playing in society, a topic that is being debated by legal scholars, policy makers, courts, the media, and corporate leaders. The Business in Society Institute’s mission is to prepare lawyers to address this new landscape. In furtherance of this mission, Amelia teaches courses, and leads the institute’s research, curriculum development, and programming. Before beginning her work in higher education, Amelia practiced law for nearly ten years.
