Law school is tough. But it doesn’t have to be brutal. Berkeley Law is one of the nation’s premier law schools, meaning that the academic demands are intense. But that’s only part of our educational picture.
Our students are remarkably collegial, partly because our grading system encourages them to compete with themselves, not against one another. Our professors—even the most legendary—are approachable and accessible. Our alumni are active members of our extended family, engaging with the school by the thousands in any given year. And our administrators are constantly looking for ways to improve the experience for everyone. In short, the Berkeley Law community is a community not just for three years, but for life.
