Clinical Program

Six photos of Clinical Program students

Students are integral to the Clinical Program’s mission to advance racial, economic, and social justice.

The program includes 14 clinics — six at the law school and eight at the East Bay Community Law Center — led by faculty members with deep subject matter expertise and a passion for teaching and justice. Clinic seminars offer students a foundation in law and practice, while hands-on client work builds critical lawyering skills.

Founded in 1998 with a generous gift by the Bernard E. and Alba Witkin Charitable Foundation.
