Teaching & Learning
Brian Yanagi ’21
Most rewarding experiential learning activity
Representing two clients in the Individual Representation Clinic, from initial interviews through the hearings in administrative court and superior court.
Favorite UC Hastings leadership role
Leading a Criminal Law discussion group in Spring 2020.
Issues that spark your passion
Lack of equal access to quality legal representation.
Particularly meaningful honor
The CALI Award in Constitutional Law, which I won in Spring 2020—an especially meaningful achievement because the coursework was challenging and we had to adjust to a new way of learning during the pandemic.
Litigating challenging, high-profile cases. I want to take on the most difficult cases for clients and provide them with excellent representation.
