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).
