Center for Clinical Education

The Center for Clinical Education, Boalt Hall’s in-house clinical facility, was established in 1998 to enable students, working under close faculty supervision, to represent clients before courts, administrative agencies, legislatures and international tribunals. The center’s mission includes three primary goals:

  • to afford students an unsurpassed opportunity to learn about the law, government institutions, professional ethics, and the lawyering process;
  • to provide the highest-quality legal representation to disadvantaged and underserved groups; and
  • to make significant contributions to the development of the law and legal systems at home and abroad.

Under the leadership of the director, Professor Deirdre Mulligan, the center offers three clinics: the Death Penalty Clinic; the International Human Rights Law Clinic; and the Samuelson Law, Technology and Public Policy Clinic. Each clinic requires students to concurrently enroll in an accompanying seminar taught by a clinical faculty member.
