Clinical Education

A pioneer in clinical legal education, UCLA Law offers plentiful opportunities to develop real-world skills in more than 40 experiential courses.

Located in one of the most dynamic and multicultural cities in the world, UCLA Law offers students the opportunity to engage in law practice prior to graduation by working with under-represented clients or groups grappling with social and economic challenges such as immigration, criminal justice reform, climate change, food insecurity and racism. Students can build their skills in clinicspracticumssimulation courses, and externships from Los Angeles to the Hague.

Simulation courses focused on litigation, dispute resolution and transactional skill development put students in the middle of complex business and adjudicatory matters. Clinics developed in the Lowell Milken Institute for Business Law and Policy and the Ziffren Institute offer the rare opportunity to work on real-life transactional matters as law students.
