J.D. Admissions

Berkeley Law is one of the nation’s premier law schools, and our academic demands are intense. But that’s only part of our educational picture.

Our students are bright, intellectually curious, and remarkably collegial. They come to Berkeley to experience a rich curriculum and a supportive learning environment and to learn the law under a grading system that encourages them to compete with themselves, rather than against one another. Berkeley Law professors—even the most legendary—are approachable and accessible. Our distinguished alumni are members of an extended, world-wide family that is engaged with the school in a multitude of ways. Our administration team actively seeks ways to improve the experience for everyone.

Being a member of the Berkeley Law community is an experience not just for three years, but for life.
