Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2019

I think Berkeley Law is a terrific school! Law school will be difficult wherever you go, but Berkeley has a great environment where students can feel at home. There are always very important and interesting judges/people that come and talk to us! I don't think I would pick any other school!

The program is great not only because of the great faculty, but also because the group that makes up the summer session Professional LL.M program includes professionals from all over the world. You learn both from your teachers, as from other countries' law practices through your classmates insights from their own professional experiences.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2014

While law school is still law school, UC Berkeley is a better place than others to go through that painful process. If you are hoping to pursue a public interest career, Berkeley is a great school to consider because you won't be alone in that choice. It is true that the majority of law grads go into firm work, but Berkeley has a sizable group of students who will be entering the public sector. Finding a supportive, like-minded community is the key to surviving law school, and I have been blown away by some of the people I've met here. While Berkeley still has a way to go in terms of increasing diversity, I know that the school is attentive to this issue. Prop 209 has hit the school hard and you see the effects not only in the composition of the student body, but also in the faculty. That being said, the faculty are engaged and students are super involved, so it is often an inspiring place to learn.

Berkeley offers a truly unique focus on law in society that shapes the student body's worldview. I cherish each and every interaction with classmates, faculty, and visiting scholars.

Amazing faculty. I am impressed everyday by the quality of instruction and the dedication to students shown by professors. Faculty are accessible and supportive. Constant opportunities for learning, networking, career exploration, etc. Classmates are impressive and passionate - they are also great to learn from. Berkeley Law has a really strong alumni network. Plus, it is sunny and 75 degrees everyday!
