      It is shown that if $k(x)$ is upper semicontinuous and quasi lower semicontinuou s on a Banach space $X$, then $k(x) B_{X^*}$ is the Clarke subdifferential of some locally Lipschitz function on $X$. Related results for approximate subdifferentials are also given. Moreover, on smooth Banach spaces, for every locally Lipschitz function with minimal Clarke subdifferential, one can obtain a maximal Clarke subdifferential map via its `local Lipschitz constant' function. Finally, some results concerning the calculus of local Lipschitz constants are developed.
