    This is an advanced clinical course for students who have already taken the Samuelson Clinic in a previous semester. Course enrollment is by permission of the instructors. Students in the Advanced Samuelson Clinic also register for the companion Advanced Samuelson Clinic Seminar, which is a separate one-unit course.

    Advanced Clinic students work on projects that vary in scope and size. They may work alone, with other advanced students, or on a team with first-time Clinic students. Advanced projects can range from follow-on work on an ongoing Clinic project (often a project the advanced student previously worked on in the Samuelson Clinic) to a new project on a new topic. Regardless of the nature of the project, Advanced Samuelson Clinic students are expected to act as informal mentors for first-time Clinic students. Depending on the project, Advanced Samuelson Clinic students can receive anywhere from 1 to 4 units of credit for their Advanced Clinic work.

    As with first-time Clinic students, Advanced Samuelson Clinic students work on ongoing and active legal matters and are entrusted with clients’ confidential and privileged information. Accordingly, students taking the Advanced Clinic are typically not permitted to do outside legal work like an internship with a judge, law firm, or a legal services organization while working on Clinic matters. Non-legal work may be permitted on a case-by-case basis; you must discuss any plans for non-legal work with an instructor in advance.

    To apply to the Advanced Samuelson Clinic, complete the demographic information and submit a resume in connection with the Berkeley Law Clinical Program application, available at https://www.law.berkeley.edu/php-programs/forms/clinics/clinical_application.php. Advanced Clinic applicants do not need to complete the short answer questions.


    Attendance at the first class is mandatory for all currently enrolled and waitlisted students; any currently enrolled or waitlisted students who are not present on the first day of class (without prior permission of the instructor) will be dropped. The instructor will continue to take attendance throughout the add/drop period and anyone who moves off the waitlist into the class must continue to attend in order not to be dropped.
