STACEY TUTT

UC Irvine School of Law
Clinical Professor of Law
Irvine, CA
Professor Stacey L. Tutt launched the Consumer Law Clinic at UC Irvine in the Fall of 2018. The Consumer Law Clinic teaches students the skills of lawyering while exploring a community-based approach to consumer law. As advocates for consumers and veterans exploited by predatory lending practices, students investigate potential consumer protection claims and provide direct representation in state and federal court for violations of California's Unfair Competition Law and other unfair and/or deceptive business practices. Direct representation may also include drafting amicus briefs in consumer cases, filing complaints with regulatory agencies, and disputing inaccuracies in consumer credit reports. Students have the opportunity to analyze finance industry regulations and legislation through white papers, public comment, and empirical research. To increase community impact and address the growing needs of consumers, students will develop self-help materials and conduct community education and outreach to help protect consumers from unfair, deceptive, or abusive practices.
