This course includes both classroom and field work components held at the Justice & Diversity Center of the Bar Association of San Francisco.

The classes and clinics are held on selected Wednesday evenings and also on the last Saturday of the month. Students earn 2 credits, but those who are certified by the State Bar’s Practical Training of Law Students program may petition instructor for a third credit. This course is offered in Spring and is restricted to part-time students during priority registration. This course counts toward completion of the Experiential Learning Requirement and is graded on a Credit/No Credit basis. Students may enroll directly without additional externship application via GGU4You.
