This two-unit seminar (289) and the co-requisite fieldwork (295.5z) integrate reading, reflection and classroom discussion on the lawyer's role in providing legal services to low-income clients and community groups with student lawyering experiences at the East Bay Community Law Center (EBCLC). An application is required (available on the school's clinic homepage), and concurrent enrollment in the seminar and fieldwork is mandatory for new students (advanced clinic work may be conducted in subsequent semesters with the permission of the instructor under Law 295.5y).

The seminar and fieldwork provide students with the opportunity to learn first-hand about the professional responsibilities and challenges of representing real clients, including instruction in the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct (and California-specific rules where appropriate). The course satisfies the Professional Responsibility requirement; with the addition of Law 299 units, papers prepared in the seminar or clinic may satisfy the Writing Requirement.

In addition to the seminar, new students work a minimum of 16 hours per week (4 units) under the close supervision of clinical instructors in one of the following practices: 1) Clean Slate; 2) Green Collar (CED); 3) Health & Welfare Law; 4) Housing Law; 5) Immigration Law; 6) Neighborhood Justice (Consumer/Homeless); or Law & Policy. More detailed descriptions of the clinics can be found on EBCLC's website:
