Personal Statement and C.V.

Personal Statement

One written essay is required of all applicants.  The Personal Statement should describe your legal interests, the reasons you wish to study at Berkeley Law, and your professional plans or goals following completion of your degree.  Since the Advanced Degree Programs Committee does not grant interviews, you may also use the statement to describe aspects of yourself that are not apparent from your application.  The Personal Statement should be written without assistance from others, and should be limited to three pages of double-spaced text.

C.V. (Curriculum Vitae)

The Curriculum Vitae should provide a synopsis of your educational and academic background and skills.  This summary should include professional experience, research experience, publications, presentations, awards, honors, affiliations, and other relevant details.

The Personal Statement and Curriculum Vitae must be uploaded to the attachments section of the online application.  Please DO NOT also send a paper copy of these documents.
