The Christopher M. Patti Legal Fellowship is named for Berkeley's esteemed former Chief Campus Counsel, Christopher M. Patti. Chris was a member of OGC for more than 27 years, and served as Berkeley's Chief Campus Counsel for the last 7 years of his life. He was a constitutional law expert, known for his integrity and keen insights in the face of complex legal challenges. Chris was deeply committed to issues of equity and diversity, including access to higher education for all underrepresented minorities and the advancement of LGBTQ rights. He was a problem-solver and exceptional counselor - his colleagues and people across the University prized Chris's perceptive and pragmatic advice. In August 2017, Chris tragically passed away in an accident during one of his beloved biking excursions.
