Berkeley Legal Studies Association is currently accepting submissions for The California Legal Studies Journal 2020. We are seeking papers pertaining to law and legal studies. However, neither you nor the class for which the paper was written must be in the Legal Studies department. We encourage students from all disciplines to submit papers, as the study of law itself is an interdisciplinary effort.

Submission Guidelines

  • Submissions should be selected from your upper-division courses and seminars, independent studies, honor thesis, or elsewhere.
  • Papers must be from 10-20 pages and should follow the MLA style of formatting, with endnotes and a complete bibliography.
  • Please send your submissions to by January 15th.
  • In your email please also include your an abstract (minimum 100 words), contact information, advisor name (if applicable), the term when the paper was written, your graduation year, and your program of study.
  • We do not publish previously published works.

If you have any further questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us via our email. We look forward to reading your work!!!

We are hiring for positions that begin in January 2020 and July 2020, and Class of 2020, 2019, and 2018 graduates are eligible to apply. ABOUT THE PROGRAM  This unique, two-year rotational fellowship sits at the intersection of the federal government and the financial services industry. Director’s Financial Analysts are given the opportunity to hone analytical and problem solving skills while helping to make markets for consumer financial products work for Americans. Members of the Director’s Financial Analyst Program will experience diverse roles, responsibilities, and areas of expertise. As a result, in a short period of time, analysts will play an integral role in everything the Bureau does, from rigorous data-driven policy creation and market monitoring to on-site supervision of market participants. All analysts will complete developmental rotations in offices throughout the CFPB. These rotations are designed to provide exposure to the analysis, strategy, research, education, policy development, supervision, enforcement, and rulemaking activities throughout the Bureau. We are recruiting for positions that begin after the 2019-2020 academic year. Previous Director’s Financial Analysts have used the program as a springboard to further their careers. Some graduates of the program have moved on to: • Grad school (e.g., Yale, MIT, Columbia, Harvard) • Private industry (e.g., Amazon, Uber, PayPal) • Public sector (e.g., Department of the Treasury, NY Fed, local government) HOW TO APPLY We are currently accepting resumes through our posting on your school’s career center website.

Each year the Cal-in-Sacramento program, a core component of the Robert T. Matsui Center for Politics and Public Service, sends approximately 30 Cal students to intern in public service in California’s capital. Cal-in-Sacramento is the University of California’s largest — and one of the nation’s most prestigious — campus-based public service internship programs. Over three decades, more than 500 Cal students have gone to Sacramento under our auspices to garner first-hand experience in the most dynamic state capital in the country. Many of these students have gone on to careers in politics, government, and public service.

Cal-in-Sacramento Fellows work for eight weeks in Sacramento internships in the offices of Senate and Assembly members, the governor’s office, state agencies, or nonprofit groups. The program provides free housing for students and a free light-rail pass so students can travel to and from work.

Interested in Cal-in-Sac? Join us for an information session on either October 8 at 5:00 pm or October 14 at 6:00 pm in the IGS Library. (The same information will be presented at both sessions.) RSVP on our Facebook.

Internship Info

Information on the GenEq Internship Program and volunteer opportunities may be found at

Interns are a part of a larger collective.  We anticipate that each intern will have their own interests and strengths, and may naturally gravitate towards a particular topic area or type of work – but to work collectively, the intern must actively contribute their ideas and perspectives and support the work of their fellow interns.

We seek applicants who are creative and highly enthusiastic about this work and these topics.  We seek students who are invested in developing a community in which we challenge each other to grow, and hold one another accountable, through reflection, dialogue and action.

The GenEq Internship Program offers an opportunity for UC Berkeley students to build upon their leadership skills creating programs, resources and initiatives that seek to create a more welcoming and inclusive campus. Our approach to addressing topics of gender and sexuality is intersectional and encourages students to strive for creating space and place that resists exclusion while expanding notions of inclusion.
