1) Living Catalogue

Living Catalogue

Don’t know what to register for next semester? Or want to meet the professor who will be your instructor? Interested in taking a Legal Studies class? The Living Catalogue is for you!

Please come out to our Living Catalogue event which is on April 8th at 6-7 pm, in the Kadish Room at 2240 Piedmont.

We will be bringing in many of the professors who will be teaching Legal Studies classes next semester and they will talk about their classes and give a brief overview of them. Some will even bring their syllabi! You will also get the chance to ask them any questions you may have.

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 event is open to ALL MAJORS, we encourage everyone to come out.

3) Advisor Holds – Come in!

Advisor Holds – Come in!
A) Legal Studies Advising Hold: This is a hold that is put on all declared Legal Studies majors’ registration, unless you already came in this semester or you’re on the current degree list.
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?  Please e-mail me.
Completely done with the major already?  Please e-mail me.
Already e-mailed me? I’ll get back to you before enrollments begin.
Otherwise, come in. B) 75 unit Undeclared Senior Hold:
Better get going on declaring!
This hold means you have close to 75 or more units and you are not yet declared.
Go to ‘About the Major’ then ‘Declaring the Major’ for instructions.
Bring in the completed and printed out Application and your essay.
Once you bring in those two things during my drop in hours, I can declare you and lift the hold.

Please do not leave your declaration paperwork in my mailbox. 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 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.
– Have your SID ready to go so that I can look you up easily and quickly.
– 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 😉

I’ve already seen 134 students out of about 200. Yay!

5) Wmn @the Supreme Ct

Wmn @the Supreme Ct

I’m writing to tell you about an important event we’re having next Thursday evening, April 11, from 6-8:30pm in the Earl Warren Room at Berkeley Law.  This special program will feature women with significant United States Supreme Court practices, and it’s co-hosted by the Berkeley Judicial Institute and the Civil Justice Research Initiative. Registration for the event is available here:
https://www.eventbrite.com/e/women-at-the-supreme-court-registration-59007297415.

The panel will feature Justice Leondra Kruger of the California Supreme Court, Beth Brinkmann of Covington & Burling, Ginger Anders from Munger Tolles & Olson, and Erin Murphy of Kirkland & Ellis. Professor Molly Van Houweling will be moderating the event, and will pose questions to the panelists about their path to becoming Supreme Court litigators, and the challenges that they faced.
The panel will run from 6-7:30pm (Warren Room), with a reception (295 Simon Hall) from 7:30 to 8:30pm.

Our hope is that the program will inspire members of the audience to think about developing Supreme Court practices.

7) Paralgl Job

Paralgl Job

I am a UC Berkeley graduate from the Legal Studies program.  Post graduation, I spent a couple years working at Morgan Lewis as a paralegal with the Global Employment and Immigration practice.  I recently got a new opportunity elsewhere, so I left the firm.  However, with graduation just around the corner, I thought that it would be a great time to reach out to you.  There is an opening for the paralegal position, and it would be a great opportunity for any recent graduate who would like to gain law firm experience.  Here is the job posting link for your reference: https://morganlewis.wd5.myworkdayjobs.com/en-US/morganlewis/job/San-Francisco-California/Immigration-Paralegal_R165.

9) RippleMatch

RippleMatch

https://ripplematch.com/index?r=ci3vCx

I’m reaching out to you to offer a service that may be of interest to your students. The company is called RippleMatch and they are a tech software startup that matches ambitious and diverse students with potential first-round interviews based on the student’s personality, work experience, and work preferences. I thought your students would find this tool particularly interesting given they work with employers such as Dell, IBM, BlackRock, Cardinal Health, and Yelp to name a few.

Students can start getting matched after taking 5 minutes to upload their resume (no cover letter needed) and set their preferences here: tinyurl.com/ripplejob

Sign up is zero cost and takes 5 minutes, so all-in-all, RippleMatch is a risk-free way for students to increase their chances of landing a dream job or internship.
