5) Advisor Hold!

Advisor Hold!

Anyone declared Legal Studies should now have an ‘Advisor Hold’ hold on their Fa17 registration in CalCentral.

The ‘Advisor Hold’ ensures that all declared students come in for advising at least once a semester in order to stay on track.

If you are on the Spring 2017 degree list and you have a hold, e-mail me. (If you already have, I’ll get back to you.) If you know for certain that you have completed all of the major requirements already and are on a different degree list, e-mail me.

If you are abroad or at UCDC, e-mail me.
Otherwise, everyone else come in, no e-mails.

If you need to declare (and you have an ‘undeclared senior hold’) come declare. Bring in the completed Legal Studies Application and your essay. (Find the App under ‘About the Major’ then ‘Declaring the Major’ on our site.)

My drop in hours are 8:30-12 and 1:30-4.

March 27    Fa17 Schedule of Classes goes live
April 17th    Fa17 registration begins

Poke your head in my office to let me know you’re here and if I’m with someone, please hang out on the couch.

Thanks!

Converting Two Months into Two Years: Successful Internships

Monday, April 10, 2017, 6:00PM – 8:00PM

Blue & Gold Room – Career Center (2440 Bancroft Way, Berkeley, CA 94704, USA)
Internships are a two way process – you hope to learn from the employer but you should also ensure you bring value to them. Many employers view internships as an extended test drive – they get to know and trust you and they expect you to get to know and trust them. Many like to convert a 10 week test drive into a longer term commitment. What can you do to ensure both you and the employer have a successful test drive that increase the chances of an offer of employment?
