MSW Field Placements and Internships

The Social Work Practice has a robust Master’s in Social Work field placement program that runs parallel to the clinical law student program. Social work interns are an essential part of our collective team, engaging in all aspects of service delivery and holistic advocacy at EBCLC. Our 1:1 internship model pairs social work interns with an EBCLC Staff Social Worker who provides mentorship and guidance throughout the field placement. Social work interns have the opportunity to work collaboratively alongside attorneys and law students, manage their own caseload, attend individual and group supervision, and accompany clients to community-based visits, including court.  

We partner with local Bay Area MSW programs, including UC Berkeley School of Social Welfare, San Francisco State University, and California State University, East Bay. If you have questions regarding an internship, please email Whitney Rubenstein at wrubenstein@ebclc.org.
