Clinical Program Annual Report

I am delighted to share the annual report of our Clinical Program. Berkeley Law clinics offer unparalleled opportunities for our students to advance social justice and public interest causes. Across our 14-clinic program, students advance justice through direct legal services, litigation, and policy work at the local, national, and international levels.

This year we welcome our largest class ever of incoming clinic students: 170 students are working alongside 47 clinical supervisors this fall. To meet this growing demand, I am delighted to announce that we will add five clinical tenure-track faculty and launch new clinics over the next five years.

Our clinical faculty are distinguished leaders in their fields. This year three of our senior faculty members, Laurel E. Fletcher, Jeffrey Selbin, and Elisabeth Semel, were named to chaired positions as Chancellor’s Distinguished Clinical Professors in recognition of their accomplishments.
