    Community and Economic Development (CED)

    Clinic Criminal Justice Clinic (CJC)

    Immigrant Rights Clinic (IRC)

    Intellectual Property, Arts, and Technology (IPAT) Clinic

    International Justice Clinic (IJC)

    Workers, Law, and Organizing Clinic (WLOC)

    Each core clinic is taught by one or more full-time faculty often joined by one or more adjunct faculty or lecturers. The Law School also currently offers the following elective clinics:

    California State Tax Clinic Consumer Law Clinic (CLC)

    International Human Rights Clinic (IHRC)

    Reproductive Justice Clinic (RJC)

    Startup and Small Business Clinic (SSBC)
