Our Mission

The Creative Law Society aims to integrate innovative thought and creative experience into everyday life at Boalt. 

We offer:

  • Networking and support to law students with creative backgrounds or interests
  • Events including "Boalt Outside the Box" -- talks and workshops by professionals from various disciplines on creativity and the law -- and opportunities for Boalt students to figure out how the law (or ast least law students) can be more creative.
  • Connections to alumni and employers in creative areas of the law, including intellectual property and arts and entertainment 

The Creative Law Society seeks to cultivate future lawyers’ unique problem-solving abilities, empowering us to serve as better advocates and leaders while staying creatively engaged during our adventure at Boalt.

About Us

The members of CLS have played concerts, written poems and books, cooked gourmet meals, traveled to faraway countries, authored code, designed this, appeared in that, and spent plenty of time of time looking like we're slacking while in fact cooking up our next great ideas. 

We believe you can keep doing all these things and still go to law school. We even believe it will help you succeed.
