Tempestt Edward (Berkeley Law ’21)

Spring 2021 Community Economic Justice Clinical Student

Tempestt is a collected, focused, and effective advocate who rose up to meet the challenge of any legal or policy matter presented to her with care and thoughtfulness. With very little background and time, Tempestt researched legal issues related to a novel and complicated policy component aimed at dis-incentivizing housing speculation and promoting community stability. Tempestt’s clarity and attention to detail distinguished her advocacy in CEJ and her legal research will continue to inform strategy decisions for community advocates on anti-displacement and affordable housing policies – job well done, Tempestt, and congratulations!
