The East Bay Community Law Center is the community-based component of Boalt Hall’s Clinical Program, providing law students with a unique opportunity to learn about the responsibilities of practicing law while reflecting on the lawyer’s role and the lawyering process. Under the supervision of EBCLC’s clinical instructors, students provide direct legal services to low-income clients and community groups in Alameda County.
Boalt students may participate at EBCLC:
- For academic credit in the Clinical Program (2Ls & 3Ls)
- As volunteers in the Community Legal Outreach (1Ls)
- As interns during the Summer Program
- In an advisory capacity on the Student Steering Committee
Student Steering Committee
Since EBCLC’s founding, its program and services have been guided by student input. The Student Steering Committee (SSC) was the entity that created the law center, and students continue to have an important advisory role through the SSC.
The SSC is voluntary, and helps promote EBCLC mission at the law school and in the larger community. Importantly, the SSC also nominates the 3 student representatives who sit on EBCLC’s Board of Directors.
For more information about the SSC and how you can help, please contact one of the following SSC representatives:
