Binder Clinical Fellowship Program

The Binder Clinical Fellowship Program offers opportunities for clinical teaching and research designed to prepare the fellow to seek a permanent clinical faculty position at a law school. The fellowship position typically has a two-year term.  In the fall and spring semesters of the first year, the fellow co-teaches and acts as supervising lawyer in existing clinics and/or clinical skills courses. A member of UCLA’s clinical faculty is the primary teacher for the courses, and mentors the fellow in UCLA’s tradition of practical training grounded in theories of lawyering.  During the following summer, the fellow is expected to be fully engaged with a scholarly research project.  The law school provides research support and faculty mentoring on legal scholarship. In the second year, the fellow is expected to complete the research project for publication and teach or co-teach one clinical course each semester.
