Come for some, come for all. Come see your friends present! 😉

Are you curious about . . .
How humanitarian aid organizations negotiate the logistical and ethical challenges of delivering aid in Syria?
How Uber and Lyft drivers negotiate the ambiguity of their employment status?
How school tax credits are really being used?

Come hear the answers to these and other fascinating questions in legal studies during the 9th Annual Legal Studies Honors Undergraduate Research Conference, Friday April 28 from 10:15 AM to 5:15 PM in the Selznick Seminar Room at 2240 Piedmont.   These honors students have been conducting original research under the guidance of Berkeley Law faculty all year.  Please feel free to stop by anytime during the day.
