The Future of Social Justice
Congratulations to our Berkeley Law and Social Work graduates!
We celebrate our graduates’ tremendous achievements and welcome them to our list of honored alumni, future social justice lawyers, and advocates.
Enjoy our students’ reflections on their experiences at EBCLC
Sam Charles, Housing Clinic
“One of the most special things about EBCLC is that the people there can work inside our legal system every day, learn it extremely well, and yet never give into the idea that its failures are normal, acceptable, or unchangeable.”
Maya Fegan, Health and Welfare Clinic
“I can truly say that EBCLC has shaped me as a future lawyer. My clinic work has given me invaluable knowledge and skills—about the nuts and bolts of community lawyering; about trauma-informed and client-centered services; and about self-care and setting boundaries to make a long-term career in direct services feel sustainable.”
Kaya McRuer, Education Defense and Justice for Youth (EDJY) Program
“My clinical experience has been foundational to my experience of law school. The law school pedagogy includes relatively little about the practice of law, but EDJY taught me both skills critical to being a lawyer and also how to put my values into practice in order to become the type of lawyer I want to be.”
