Dave Min is a father, a devoted husband, and a UC Irvine law professor who has dedicated his life to improving the economic opportunities available to working families. After graduating from Wharton and Harvard Law School, Dave began his career as an Enforcement attorney at the Securities and Exchange Commission, turning down higher paying private sector jobs to help protect the retirement security of seniors and help clean up an unfair and corrupt financial system in the aftermath of the Enron and Worldcom accounting scandals.

He is a first generation Korean-American and native California who lives and works in Irvine with his wife and UC Irvine School of Law colleague Jane Stoever, where they are raising their three children.
