Legislative and Public Policy Clinic
The Legislative and Public Policy Clinic provides a practical skills experience in researching, drafting, and pursuing adoption of California state legislative and regulatory changes. While seeking these changes, students will interact with elected and appointed officials in state government, their staff, lobbyists, and public affairs professionals. Students will also have an opportunity to develop political coalitions, interact with the media, and advocate for change in State Capitol proceedings.
Students participate in weekly meetings to present the results of their team collaborations and to receive feedback from the professor and fellow students. As with all clinics, a written application is required. Participation in the Capital Certificate Program is preferred, but not required. The Clinic is year-long. Students may not take the Clinic for only one semester.
Professor Rex Frazier has extensive experience in California legislative and regulatory advocacy, for both government and private clients, and has overseen significant campaign/election programs. Capitol Weekly regularly names Professor Frazier in its Top 50 list of the most influential individuals in California politics.
