Clinical Program

students at whiteboard


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.


Join us for a virtual clinical program information session Monday, Oct. 19 at 12:45-2 p.m.

The Zoom link for the main information session presentation is here. 

Learn about our 14 clinics and the application process for spring 2021. Each clinic will have a separate Zoom call where faculty and current students will answer questions. (Information on how to join the clinic-specific sessions will be available soon.) Students are welcome to go back and forth between the various clinic-specific calls. All clinics accept applications from 2Ls and 3Ls, and some clinics accept applications from 1Ls. 

Applications will be available soon here.

Apply by noon on Monday, October 26.
