How To Get Into
Berkeley Law School
Berkeley Program Overview
The University of California, Berkeley, School of Law, referred to as Berkeley Law and Boalt Hall, is ranked one of the top law schools in the country. Esteemed alumni include Chief Justice Earl Warren and Attorney General of the United States Edwin Meese.
Berkeley is known for its commitment to providing a high quality legal education in a “supportive learning environment.” The school discourages competition by fostering collegiality amongst students not only through their unique non-letter grading system but by also encouraging social gatherings. In fact, students are known to have “bar review” every Thursday night where they congregate and relax at a local drinking hole. Moreover, providing a supportive environment extends not only to its students but to the community as well. It should come as no surprise that while “[s]ome schools have a pro bono requirement; at Berkeley Law, [they] have a pro bono culture.”
Located in the Northern California just east of San Francisco, Berkeley offers an energetic and exciting place to attend law school. Steeped in history and culture, students can debate legal topics right across the street at Caffe Strata, get a slice of pizza on the go at Blondie’s, root for the Bears at Memorial Stadium, catch a concert at The Greek or enjoy a relaxing hike in Tilden Park. And don’t forget, San Francisco is a short Bart ride away.
