The clinic (295.5z) and a co-requisite two-unit seminar (289) integrate student lawyering experiences at the East Bay Community Law Center (EBCLC) with reading, reflection and classroom discussion on the lawyer's role in providing legal services to low-income clients and community groups. An application available on the school's clinic homepage (www.law.berkeley.edu/clinics.htm) is required, and concurrent enrollment in the seminar and clinic is mandatory for new students (advanced clinic work may be conducted in subsequent semesters with the permission of the instructors under Law 295.5y).
Students work a minimum of 16 hours per week (4 units) under the close supervision of attorneys in one of the following clinics: (1) Housing, (2) Public Benefits, (3) Health, (4) Clean Slate (community reentry), (5) Immigration, (6) Neighborhood Justice (consumer and homelessness), (7) Green-Collar Communities (economic development), (8) Youth Defender (juvenile justice) or (9) Policy Advocacy. More detailed descriptions of the clinics can be found on EBCLC's website (www.ebclc.org).
The clinic provides students with the opportunity to learn first-hand about the responsibilities and challenges of representing real clients. With the addition of Law 299 units, papers prepared in the seminar or clinic may satisfy the Writing Requirement.
Enrollment in the EBCLC seminar (Law 289) is a co-requisite to the clinic.
This course satisfies the Skills Requirement.
