Requesting Reimbursements

All reimbursement forms and instructions are located on the Berkeley Law Business Services Forms and Flyers web page. 

Use the white mailbox located in Boalt Hall in the stairwell behind the donor wall and across from Steinhart Courtyard to send your completed forms and receipts to the Publications Coordinator.  You may also use regular campus mail (#7220, 2850 Telegraph Avenue). 

Two things you should know about reimbursements:

  • Reimbursements are not guaranteed - check with your managing editor to obtain approval before spending journal funds.   
  • Read Minimizing the Risk of Identity Theft (PDF)   This flyer explains the difference between a “receipt” and a “proof of payment” and describes the personal financial information you should carefully redact before you share your reimbursement documentation with others.

 

For low-value purchases of supplies and photocopying:

  • Complete a Check Request Form.
  • Tape the original receipts a clean page.  Keep tape away from writing to ensure legible scanning and don’t use recycled paper since both sides will be scanned as your request is processed by the Disbursements Office.
  • Send the completed form and original receipts to Business Services.
  •
