Clinical Program

We choose our students — and our faculty — for their passion
and commitment to learning and justice.

Berkeley Law’s clinical program includes 14 clinics — six in-house clinics and eight community-based clinics housed at the East Bay Community Law Center, led by faculty members and practitioners with deep expertise in their areas of specialization. Classroom seminars offer students a foundation in law and practice, while hands-on casework builds critical lawyering skills.
