In the subject of the email, please put “Journal Submission,” and in the body give us your name and year. (Please remove your name from the actual paper itself, as they are judged blind).

Submissions should be in Word or PDF format, with 12 point Times New Roman and 2.0 spacing with Chicago footnotes/endnotes.

We would be honored to print some works by Berkeley students; but since this is still a history publication, they must explore a historical topic-no contemporary pieces please. For more information, see the website https://www.ocf.berkeley.edu/~clios/.

3) Rstorative Just. Decal

Rstorative Just. Decal

NOTE: this DeCal will not count towards the requirements for the Legal Studies major.
On behalf UC Berkeley’s Restorative Justice Center, I would like to invite students of the Legal Studies Department to take part in our Fall 2018 Restorative Justice: Practice & Principles DeCal. I feel like this would be an insightful course for students considering law practice and a way for them to explore an alternative method of conflict resolution.

This Decal aims to train students in the art and processes of Restorative Justice and Restorative Practice in the context of social justice and community building. We talk about campus climate issues, the meaning of justice, and ways to disrupt cycles of violence! Class meetings will take the form of circles, each with its own unique theme and style. Guest speakers with experience in the social justice arena, restorative justice and community building for solidarity will bring their unique knowledge and expertise into the circles. Participants will be required to develop research projects discussing campus and community issues with an emphasis on the potential for responses based in Restorative Justice and Restorative Practice.

We are currently still waiting on our CCN number, but in the meantime we ask that if you are interested, e-mail us at rjdecalcucb@gmail.com

Please let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to meeting you!

Thank you,

Anashe Barton

16) Pub Pol 98/198

Pub Pol 98/198

NOTE: this DeCal will not count towards the requirements for the Legal Studies major.

We are looking for a diverse group of students from different personal and academic backgrounds to be writers for Policy Review @ Berkeley. The first class begins on Monday, September 10 in Hearst Annex B5 from 5-6:30pm. Students can also e-mail facilitators at policyreviewberkeley@gmail.com with any questions.

Policy Review at Berkeley is the official undergraduate journal of the Goldman School of Public Policy. The journal is a ‘teaching journal’, for which DeCal course facilitators will lecture material on the semester theme and assign various policy-focused writing assignments that will allow students to find where they stand in the policy conversation; design-specialist, activist, analyst, or both? Writing assignments for the DeCal will be synthesized into a final publication at the end of the semester. Over the course of the semester, students will hone their newswriting, interviewing, and policy analysis skills, while also sharing their personal stories.

This semester’s theme for the publication is “There’s No Place Like Home.” We will be focusing on policies that affect our hometowns, our home-countries, and our newfound home, Berkeley. Local laws and policies have a huge impact on the homes in which children grow up, the schools they attend, and every other facet of life. We’ll dive into many of these policies, and share our stories about how they shape(d) us and how we shape(d) them. Each class will consist of lecture and discussion about local policies on housing, education, and criminal justice. We hope that through the DeCal, students can gain a better perspective on how their homes shaped who they have become today.

This course is offered through the Goldman School of Public Policy. STUDENTS WITH A PASSING GRADE WILL RECEIVE TWO (2) UPPER DIVISION PUBLIC POLICY UNITS THAT COUNT TOWARDS THE PUBLIC POLICY UNDERGRADUATE MINOR REQUIREMENTS. To be added to the course please attend the first two meetings of the class. Should interest exceed space available, enrollment preference will be given to those in attendance (and on time) to the first class.
