About UCLA School of Law's Consumer Law Program

Students at UCLA Law learn from expert faculty at the vanguard of contemporary consumer law and policy. From contract law to consumer bankruptcy, our curriculum explores questions of relevance to consumers from multiple perspectives and countless directions.

We also offer specialized programs to address specific areas of law and policy affecting the everyday life of consumers. For instance, students interested in health care law can select classes on health care financing and delivery or biotechnology, including drug and device development and patenting. Our Resnick Program in Food Law and Policy enables students to tackle policy topics such as nutrition and labeling, urban agriculture, hunger and food access. Students focused on consumer law also can take advantage of unique externships with regulatory bodies like the Federal Trade Commission.

UCLA Law is a pioneer in the consumer law arena, creating unprecedented opportunities for students to learn about – and help shape – laws and policies that will affect consumers for generations to come.
