Workers’ Rights Disability Law Clinic

Students will work in the clinic providing direct services to people who have contacted Legal Aid at Work for a disability and employment related issue. Students will meet with clients by themselves, either in person or on the phone, and will listen to and direct the client’s story such that all the pertinent details can be aired. Then, the students will return to the conference room, where they will research potential legal claims before consulting with an attorney about the potential claims. After reaching an agreement with the attorney about the claims and limitations the client has, the student will return to the client alone and explain the client’s rights and responsibilities.

Time Commitment: 3.5 hours every other week for 2 semesters

Supervision: Students will receiving training from and be supervised by attorneys from Legal Aid at Work.

For more information, please contact the student leaders at berkeley.wrdlc@gmail.com.
