Berkeley Law’s bookstore is usually located on the second floor of Simon Hall (room 286), but we move it to a larger location (normally the Goldberg Room) during the week before classes and the first week of the semester to accommodate increased book-buying activity. In addition to casebooks and textbooks, the bookstore stocks books, supplies, commercial outlines, study aids, apparel, and aspirin.
The bookstore is currently operated by Follett Corporation, which operates the campus bookstore on Bancroft Way (the street that borders the law school) below Telegraph Avenue. Follett remits a percentage of the sales from the bookstore to the Boalt Hall Student Association (BHSA), which uses the money for its general budget and to fund student organizations.
Many second-year students sell their used first-year books to the incoming class. If you buy used books, make sure to have the most current edition, and make sure that the underlining and/or highlighting in the book is not too distracting for you. A list of required and recommended books will be posted online at the beginning of the semester.
