The Location


The Mills Legal Clinic is housed on the first floor of the recently constructed, award-winning William H. Neukom building at Stanford Law School. The clinic is a collaborative space in which students, clinic directors, supervising attorneys and staff assemble. An open-plan office with 72 workstations is designed to foster team-style learning and informal interactions among clinic students and faculty. Satellite conference rooms off the main space can be used for research and writing or for private client consultations. Glass partitions and nine skylights diffuse natural light throughout the floor, connecting the building’s interior to its exterior. “Wipeable” glass alternative and “dry erase” painted walls make for modern and attractive writing surfaces. Overall, the clinic space is designed to encourage collaboration and reflect the school’s vision for a dynamic, hands–on approach to legal education.

The Community Law Clinic, one of the eleven clinics that make up the Mills Legal Clinic, functions in a newly renovated headquarters off-site in East Palo Alto. The off-campus location gives students the unique opportunity to work in a community-based, storefront, legal aid office. The renovation—CLC’s first major renovation in 10 years—represents an investment by SLS and Stanford University to maintaining a physical presence in East Palo Alto. Similar to the Neukom office, the Community Law Clinic office utilizes open-plan workstations for up to 25 full-time students.
