Outreach Project Workshops

Join first-year Berkeley Law students on student-initiated legal service projects for under-served communities.

Get Real-Life, Hands-On Experience

If you are a law student looking for real-life ways to close the justice gap while trying something new, our student-initiated law projects, led by J.D. students at Berkeley, are an excellent way to interact with clients and get hands-on experience as early as your first year of law school. Other benefits include:

  • Training and mentoring
  • Pro-bono hours for state bar requirements
  • Summer public interest stipends (for J.D. students)
  • Recognition at Berkeley Law’s Public Interest and Pro Bono Graduation
