Abstract

This festschrift essay celebrates Professor Eleanor Swift’s singular role and legacy in building Berkeley Law’s vibrant public interest program.

Thousands of students have passed through one or more of the experiential education courses and social justice programs that Professor Swift helped to create, build and sustain. In these settings, students have learned to be better lawyers and better people. They have provided legal services to underserved individuals, groups and causes. And they have given content to the law school’s public mission to solve real-world problems and create a more just society.

Keywords: Eleanor Swift, Berkeley Law, Boalt Hall, public interest, social justice, clinical education
