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, as is admission to the specific clinic, 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 or 20 hours per week (varies per clinic) under the close supervision of attorneys in one of the following clinics: (1) Community Economic Justice Clinic (2) Clean Slate Clinic (community reentry), (3) Consumer Justice Clinic, (4) Education Advocacy Clinic, (5) Health and Welfare Clinic, (6) Housing Law Clinic, (7) Immigration Law Clinic, or (8) Youth Defender Clinic. More detailed descriptions of the clinics can be found on EBCLC's website https://ebclc.org/students/academic-year-clinical-program/clinic-information/).
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 or have prior permission of the instructor in order not to be dropped.
