CLASS Network Director - Center for Consumer Law & Economic Justice


Do you want to work every day to advance the rights of low-income consumers? Do you want to lead a national network of law school programs dedicated to building racial and economic justice?

Well, then, perhaps this is the job for you.

The UC Berkeley Center for Consumer Law & Economic Justice seeks a director for the CLASS Network, a new consortium dedicated to promoting racial and economic justice programs in law schools around the United States and beyond. The CLASS (Consumer Law Advocates, Scholars, & Students) Network works to increase the number of relevant courses offered at law schools, to develop and foster new clinics and student organizations, and to offer the chance for law students and faculty around the country to come together on shared projects like amicus briefs in high-profile cases and filings in significant regulatory proceedings.

A partnership between the UC Berkeley Center and the National Association of Consumer Advocates (NACA), the CLASS Network also hosts the Economic Justice Law Students Summit – the only national conference for students interested in consumer protection law and economic justice. 

So, if you want to

  • create something new
  • be part of a national effort to work with law students and faculty to increase racial and economic justice
  • work on major cases with students and practitioners from around the nation
  • work at Berkeley Law
  • help train and inspire the next generation of economic justice lawyers and advocates, in partnership with the National Association of Consumer Advocates, and
  • travel the country

you might want to send in your resume.

The Director will also be involved with the full range of the Center’s other activities, from arranging conferences to delivering presentations and testimony to spurring the development of consumer protection law across the country and around the world.
