Working with the CLC Director, the CLC Fellow will mentor and work closely with students in the representation of CLC clients, and will participate in program development including community lawyering and outreach. The CLC Fellow will also have opportunities for teaching within the CLC, including assisting with the teaching of the CLC seminar. The CLC Fellow is expected to be a vital part not only of the CLC, but also of the UCI Clinical Law Program, and the law faculty's intellectual life more generally. As such, the CLC Fellow will receive mentoring, and can expect support in terms of career development.

Each core clinic is taught by one or more full-time faculty and one or more adjunct faculty. The Law School also currently has six elective clinics in the areas of Fair Employment Housing; Civil Rights Litigation; Cyber Victims Defense; International Human Rights; Reproductive Justice; and Startup and Small Business.
