About This Journal
The California Regulatory Law Reporter is published by the Center for Public Interest Law (CPIL) at the University of San Diego School of Law. Created in 1980, CPIL is an academic center of research, teaching, and advocacy in administrative and public interest law. CPIL focuses its efforts on the study of an extremely powerful—yet often overlooked—level of government: state agencies which regulate business, professions, and trades. CPIL teaches direct lawyering skills in administrative and public interest law to USD law students; advocates the interests of consumers in the legislature, the courts, and before administrative agencies; and attempts to make the regulatory functions of state government more efficient, visible, and accountable by serving as a public monitor of state agencies. CPIL is funded by the University of San Diego, the Price Chair Endowment contributed by Sol and Helen Price, foundation grants, and contributions from generous individuals.
