8) PhD @UMass

PhD @UMass

Jamie Rowen, PhD grad from the Jurisprudence & Social Policy program and Legal Studies GSI, is now working in the Department of Political Science at UMass Amherst. She sent this message to all of you thinking of graduate school:

“We are hoping to recruit good graduate students for our burgeoning Public Law faculty, and to work with the newly reestablished Law and Society Association at UMass. We have some outstanding scholars who specialize in immigration, federal courts, international and comparative law, as well as criminal justice. I’d like to get the word out to Berkeley Legal Studies undergraduates that this is a great place for them to continue their education.

Can you let Legal Studies majors know, particularly those doing honors theses, about our program? I’m happy to be a contact person for them.

jamierowen1@yahoo.com

Thanks!
Jamie Rowen”
