Torture in the service of Career

| | TrackBacks (0)

In case you're wondering why "some nice liberal guy from the AG's office" is sleeping with the devil, the answer may be as simple as self-advancement: 

David Carrillo ['91, JD '95, LL.M '07] 

David Carrillo


David A. Carrillo is a Deputy Attorney General with the California Department of 

Justice, where as a member of the Employment, Regulation, and Administration Section 

(ERA) he represents state agencies in civil litigation, writs of mandate and 

administrative proceedings on issues of statewide importance in state and federal court. 


Before joining the Attorney General's Office, Mr. Carrillo served as a Deputy City 

Attorney in San Francisco and as a Deputy District Attorney in Contra Costa County, 

and worked as an associate in private practice. In addition to earning B.A., J.D., and 

LL.M. degrees from UC Berkeley, currently Mr. Carrillo is preparing a dissertation on 

California constitutional law in the J.S.D. program at the UC Berkeley School of Law.  

Whether this teaching gig was initiated by the Torture Professor or Carrillo himself, it represents a case of shameless opportunism. IF the guy still has a moral compass, he should come to his senses and take heed of a plea from students.
