3) P/NP Ddlne

P/NP Ddlne

Friday, October 27 is the deadline to change from or to P/NP.
PLEASE check in CalCentral now, to confirm that your courses are set for the correct grading option.

NOTE: all courses for the Legal Studies major must be taken for a letter grade.

If you change a Legal Studies requirement to P/NP you won’t be able to use it for the major. It can be tough to decide whether or not to change a course to P/NP, so if you have questions let me know.

NOTE: if you change a course to P/NP, make sure you pass it. A grade of C- minus or higher is required to Pass a class with a ‘P’. For some grad programs, and law school, an ‘NP’ grade is factored into your admissions gpa as an ‘F’. Oh noooooo!

Leg.Asst. Job

PART-TIME LEGAL ASSISTANT
FOR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AND
BUSINESS LITIGATION LAWYER
OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA

Four blocks from the 19th St BART station.

I practice intellectual property law and business litigation. This would be a part-time
job, 12-15 hours a week, in the afternoon, until about 6 pm. No work is expected during
the week before finals and the week of finals, and more work can be done during breaks.
I recognize that the academics come first, and the job comes next.
The person filling the job will have to be versatile: able to review documents, serve and
file documents, and other paralegal-type work, while also doing administrative work like
Quickbooks and marketing, working with clients to get documents, billing, and working
with our vendors. I’m especially interested in someone who can do some light
“programming” of our software to automate matters for the future. If someone is willing
to work for us for more than a year, I can certify them as a paralegal should he or she
meet the standards.

The office is on a floor with some 20 other lawyers, who practice a wide range of
specialties. The dress is professional casual — no shorts and flip-flops, but neat jeans
and shirt or blouse is fine. Professional attire (e.g., suits for men) would only be required
should we need to go to court. I take my job and my clients’ interests very seriously —
but I don’t take myself seriously.

This is a great opportunity for someone who is interested in the legal world. Intellectual
property has a lot of interesting questions that are constantly arising, and I’ve had the
privilege of working on some of them. The pay starts at $18/hour, and we will reimburse
for BART or AC Transit travel through a Clipper card.

To apply, please scan and email your resume to:
bayoaklaw@gmail.com

7) Two Pretrial Svcs Jobs

Two Pretrial Svcs Jobs

The Northern District of California Pretrial Services Agency was
established in 1987 with a mission to assist the Court in administering
pretrial justice, protect the community, and to bring about positive change
for individuals under supervision.

The U.S. Pretrial Services Agency assists the court with reducing
unnecessary pretrial detention by providing timely, objective bail
investigations which offer alternatives to detention. The agency is
responsible for supervising defendants released on bail through the use of
various monitoring strategies, and provides for connecting defendants with
treatment services. Pretrial Officers often are the first court
representatives that defendants encounter after their arrest. It is this
agency's mission to investigate defendants charged with federal crimes,
recommend in a report to the court whether to release or detain these
individuals, and supervise individuals who are released to the community
while they await their day in court. The officer must balance the
presumption "an individual is presumed innocent until proven guilty" with
the court's concern that the defendant will not endanger the public.
Working with judges, attorneys, state and local law enforcement agencies,
and treatment providers the officer delivers services that benefit the
court, community, and the defendant.

Attached are two job announcements. One is for our San Francisco office and
the other is for our Oakland office. Please feel free to forward this to
any students you feel may be interested in this position. The San Francisco
announcement closes November 3, 2017 and the Oakland announcement November
10, 2017.

Job CollegeSpring

I am a Cal student involved in a national education non-profit called CollegeSpring. I am reaching out to the Legal Studies Department with hopes of sharing the word about CollegeSpring’s paid internship. It’s a great opportunity for students who are interested in nonprofits and looking to gain great teaching experience by working closely with incredible, highly deserving high school students in Bay Area.

CollegeSpring is a nonprofit organization that provides free SAT, ACT, and college access classes for high school students from low-income backgrounds. Every year, CollegeSpring hires committed undergraduates to mentor small groups of their students over the course of a semester, helping them prepare for the SAT/ACT and college admissions. Mentors get hands-on experience and training in classroom management and lesson planning, and often go on to work with organizations like Teach for America and City Year after graduation.

CollegeSpring is currently recruiting for our Spring 2018 cohort, and I am hoping you will share this opportunity with your students. The final deadline is November 13th and the link is here:  goo.gl/wYFFLi

CollegeSpring: Oakland, San Francisco and other Bay Area locations
Pay: $12/hour or minimum wage, whichever is highest in that area

CollegeSpring is dedicated to helping students from low-income backgrounds pursue the college educations they deserve.  Every spring, hundreds of talented undergraduates join CollegeSpring to help high schoolers in their community—most of whom come from low-income backgrounds—pursue their college dreams. Working directly in students’ classrooms, these mentors help students prepare for the SAT and ACT exams, share insights from their own college experiences, and serve as crucial role models during the application process. Apply now here: goo.gl/wYFFLi

Thank you,
Jennifer Kim, Cal Campus Recruiter
