The Clinical Experience

The UCLA Clinical Program offers extensive and rigorous practical training for students interested in litigation, transactional and public interest work. Through our clinics, students develop the skills that will prepare them for a lifelong practice, while making a difference in people’s lives. Alongside faculty members and practicing attorneys, students in our clinical program are helping non-profit organizations to develop affordable housing in Los Angeles and advocating for the reduction of marine plastics pollution.
