The Berkeley Center for Consumer Law & Economic Justice works to ensure safe, equal and fair access to the marketplace. Through research, advocacy, policy and teaching, the Center acts to create a society where economic security and opportunity are available to all.
“Every one of us lives a daily life as a consumer, and marketplace fairness is a universal right; for those struggling economically, it is a basic necessity.”
“The creative energy and practical efforts of this center will help improve the economic lives of all Americans. It is needed and welcomed by all who champion the cause of consumers.”
—Richard Cordray, founding director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
