Juliet M. Brodie, who directs the Stanford Community Law Clinic (CLC), has been a member of the Stanford faculty since 2006. Throughout her career as a clinical teacher, Professor Brodie has been committed to law school clinics embedded in low-income communities. An award winning teacher, Professor Brodie is dedicated to creating in her clinic an environment where novice lawyers can gain crucial practical skills, while exploring the value (and limits) of law as an instrument of social justice.
Professor Brodie has subject matter expertise in tenants’ rights, access to justice, and poverty law generally. She is co-editor Poverty Law, Policy, & Practice (Wolters Kluwer 2d ed., 2020), as well as articles on the mutually reinforcing values of clinical legal education and community lawyering. She has been a senior consulting attorney to leading nonprofits in the Bay Area on eviction defense and tenant protection practices.
In September 2021, Brodie was appointed as the Peter E. Haas Faculty Director of Stanford’s Haas Center for Public Service. The Haas Center is the hub of Cardinal Service [add weblink], the university-wide initiative to make principled and effective public service an essential part of a Stanford education.
Professor Brodie served as Associate Dean of Clinical Education and Director of the Mills Legal Clinic from 2013-2019, and was co-chair of Stanford’s strategic planning efforts on community engagement as part of the university’s long range planning effort in 2017-2019. In 2020-2021, she has served on the clinical program’s leadership team coordinating and implementing the program’s diversity, equity, inclusion, and anti-racism efforts.
Before joining the Stanford Law School faculty in 2006, Professor Brodie was an associate clinical professor at the University of Wisconsin Law School and a clinical assistant professor at the University of Michigan Law School. Immediately before entering the academy, she served as an assistant attorney general for the state of Wisconsin, prosecuting health care providers accused of defrauding the Medicaid system.

Community Law Clinic
The Community Law Clinic (CLC) is fundamentally a trial practice clinic. Based in East Palo Alto, a low-income community four miles from the law school, the CLC is the closest thing to a traditional legal services office among Stanford’s clinical offerings. The signature feature of the CLC is its off-campus location, which gives students the unique opportunity to work in a community-based, storefront, legal aid office. The office affords CLC students extensive client contact, as well as a feel for daily life in East Palo Alto, a “majority-minority City”, which for decades has had a poverty rate well above the national and state rates.View Community Law Clinic
