1) Degree Audit APR

Degree Audit APR

The new degree audit, also known as the APR or Academic Progress Report will show up October 8th.
We have not worked through all of the issues that will inevitably arise for the Legal Studies major requirements.
It may not work properly for the major requirements for quite a while.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Please do not be alarmed!!!  😉
I will clear all students for their Legal Studies requirements when it comes time for you to graduate using your transcripts as well as the paper file that I keep for all of you.

Go here for more info about the new APR:

The webpage above includes a link to a job aid for generating an APR:

And here is a link to the college advising ‘Forms and Petitions’ webpage where the APR Correction Form can be found towards the bottom under ‘Other’ to correct Letters & Science requirements on your APR:

3) Advising Holds

Advising Holds

A) Legal Studies Advising Hold:
This is the hold that is put on all declared Legal Studies majors’ registration.
This is so that students are reminded to come in for advising at least once a semester.
Once you come into my office during my drop-in hours, I will lift the hold.

Abroad or participating in UCDC?  Please e-mail me.
If you have completed ALL of the requirements for Legal Studies, e-mail me.
If you are on the Su17 degree list, e-mail me.
OTHERWISE, come in, no e-mails.

B) Undeclared Senior Hold:
Better get going on declaring!
This hold means you have 90 or more units and you are not yet declared.
Go to ‘About the Major’ then ‘Declaring the Major’ for instructions.
Bring in the completed Application and your essay.
Tip: ‘Course #’ really just means which class did you take…(ex: LS 184 or Math 13 or AP US Hist. etc etc)
Once you bring in those two things during my drop in hours, I can declare you and lift the hold.

If I’ve already met with you this semester and you are on my list of early advisees, I will lift the hold before your Phase I.
I have to go into the system one student at a time to lift the holds, so please be patient.
Thanks!

C) Advising Tips:
– Poke your head in the door when you get here so that I know you’re waiting and if I’m with someone, please wait out on the couch, not in the little dark hallway or xerox room.
– If you’re bringing in paperwork, have it in hand and already completed so that things move more quickly and smoothly.
– This is a really busy time in my office, so let’s keep our meetings brief, because no one likes to wait in line.
Thanks 😉

This is a great opportunity to get a taste of what different Legal Studies classes are like and mingle with the professor and your fellow peers. This even is open to ALL MAJORS, we encourage everyone to come out.

This event is hosted by Berkeley Legal Studies Association (BLSA) which is an ASUC sponsored organization.

5) DACA Event

DACA Event

Since the recent presidential announcement to rescind DACA, a program protecting between 800,000 and 1.1 million undocumented youth in the United States, immigration has become an even more important issue. Each Congress for the past decade has failed to pass comprehensive immigration reform, all the while creating uncertainty for the futures of over 11 million undocumented persons living in the United States.

The Theta Class of Kappa Alpha Pi (KAPi), the premier professional pre-law fraternity at the University of California, Berkeley, invites you to explore the intersections of immigration, law, and public policy at its Fall 2017 legal forum. The event will feature a panel including attorneys, legal scholars, and former government advisors, all sharing their experiences working in immigration law.

Date: Tuesday, October 10
Time: 7:00-9:00PM
Location: TBD
Attire: Campus Casual
– – –
Attending Panelists:

Maria Echaveste, former U.S. presidential advisor to Bill Clinton and Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress

Kathy Brady, Senior Staff Attorney at the Immigration Legal Resource Center and co-founder of the Defending Immigrants Partnership and the Immigrant Justice Network

Mélody Saint-Saëns, Regional Immigration Coordinator for Bay Area Legal Aid
