3) JSP PhD needs help

JSP PhD needs help

Dear Berkeley student,

My name is Brittany Arsiniega, a PhD student at UC Berkeley in the JSP program. I would like to request your participation in a research study titled “Family and Politics” that I am conducting with the Center on Civility and Democratic Engagement at UC Berkeley. We hope to understand more about the experience of individuals whose family members hold different political beliefs from them. Specifically, we’re looking for students whose parents have different political beliefs from them.

The study involves a brief 3-minute survey and a phone interview that should last about one hour. If you are interested in participating in this study, please click here to schedule a phone interview. Once you sign up for a time, you will receive an email confirmation with a link to complete the brief (3-minute) survey prior to our interview.

Again, the link to sign up for an interview time is here, or if the link isn’t working, here: https://familyandpolitics.as.me/schedule.php.

Sincerely,

Brittany Arsiniega

PhD Student, Jurisprudence and Social Policy, UC Berkeley

Adjunct Professor, Furman University

6) Congrats to Alexandria!

Congrats to Alexandria!
Alexandria Ku, Legal Studies/Econ 2017 grad, now at Berkeley Law, has been selected as an Honorable Mention for the 2018 Law and Society Association Undergraduate Student Paper Prize.

Professor Albiston nominated Alexandria’s paper entitled, “Stereotyping and the Limits of Title VII,” for consideration and the committee was very impressed by her work.

She will be presented the honorable mention award at the upcoming Annual Meeting on June 7-10 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Bravo Alexandria!

Just wanted you all to see that your hard work and connections with faculty can pay off in big ways. 😉
