Angela Onwuachi-Willig and Leti Volpp quoted by The Daily Californian, Dec. 3, 2017

UC Berkeley School of Law professor Angela Onwuachi-Willig said in an email that to her knowledge, marrying for financial aid is not illegal and is “no different” from marrying for wealth.

“Marriage is always a legal and economic contract, whether people recognize it or not,” said Leti Volpp, another law professor at UC Berkeley, in an email.
