Founded in 1983, the ASUC Student Legal Clinic was established to help educate the Berkeley community about available legal options. Today, the clinic continues with this tradition. Clients can drop by our office Monday through Friday to obtain legal assistance from our dedicated interns who provide clientele with fully researched case reports — outlining possible legal options and any other pertinent information. With our new VITA program, clients who are in need of tax assistance can now schedule an appointment online and be aided by our trained staff with filing their tax returns. Besides offering help to the community, the SLC also fosters a friendly environment where interns can interact with other students who share similar interests and goals. The weekly meetings feature guest speakers, such as Cal alumni, Berkeley Law admissions officers, and local attorneys. Furthermore, the internship is a great opportunity for students to become acquainted with the pre-law process, exposing them to hands-on legal research and invaluable, community outreach and assistance.
