Summer Program

EBCLC is the largest provider of free legal services to low-income residents of Alameda County, California, and is home to the community-based clinical program for UC Berkeley School of Law during the academic year. During the full-time summer session, EBCLC welcomes students from ALL law schools.

Hiring for the Summer 2023 program is completed. Check back in December 2023 for information on the Summer 2024 program.

EBCLC is a nationally-recognized poverty law clinic founded by Berkeley Law students in 1988 with the dual mission of providing high quality legal services to low-income clients and first-rate clinical education to law students.

As a women of color-led and centered organization, EBCLC takes a women of color centered approach to providing legal services. We believe that if we solve the disparate outcomes that women of color experience in healthcare, housing, education, immigration, debt collection, and the criminal legal system, all people will thrive.  

In eight (8) clinics within five broad programs areas, EBCLC staff and students take a multimodal approach to addressing the causes and conditions of poverty and inequality by providing legal education and outreach, brief services, full and holistic representation, and policy advocacy.
