The Binder Clinical Fellowship Program offers opportunities for clinical teaching and research designed to prepare fellows to seek permanent faculty positions at a law school.
The fellowship position typically has a two-year term. In the first year, fellows co-teach and act as supervising lawyers in existing clinics, under the guidance of clinical faculty members who mentor fellows in UCLA Law's tradition of practical training grounded in theories of lawyering. In the second year, fellows continue to co-teach clinical courses and are expected to complete a research project for publication, with research support and faculty mentoring on legal scholarship. The Binder Fellow may teach in more than one clinic during their fellowship.
