This two-unit seminar (289) and the co-requisite clinic (295.5Z) integrate hands-on 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. To be admitted to EBCLC Clinic you must fill out an application and be admitted by EBCLC (https://www.law.berkeley.edu/php-programs/forms/clinics/clinical_application.php). 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).

In addition to the seminar, clinic students work a minimum of 16 hours per week (4 units) under the close supervision of attorneys in one of the following clinics: (1) Clean Slate Clinic (community reentry), (2) Consumer Justice Clinic, (3) Community Economic Justice, (4) Education Justice 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/).

The seminar and clinic provide students with the opportunity to learn first-hand about the professional responsibilities and challenges of representing real clients.
