Classroom learning is one thing. Real-world lawyering is another. Experience counts heavily with employers, and our clinical programs enable students to put theory into practice.
Berkeley Law’s clinics—ten in the community, three in the law school—are directed by full-time faculty members who are highly regarded experts in their fields. Classroom seminars provide students with the necessary foundation in relevant law and practice, while hands-on casework for clients builds critical lawyering skills. We choose students for their passion and potential—ensuring that the clinics are staffed by students and faculty who are committed to learning and justice.
The Clinical Program recently celebrated the opening of its new space - made possible by a generous gift from the Bernard E. and Alba Witkin Charitable Foundation. You can read more about our Ribbon Cutting event here and you can see pictures from the event here.
