Visiting Berkeley Law
The UC Berkeley campus and Berkeley Law building are currently closed due to COVID-19. Visitors are prohibited on campus and in the Law Building. However, we encourage you to take a self-guided virtual tour of the Law Building in our slideshow above, as well as get acquainted with law school and the Bay Area in the videos below.
First, start in the dynamic and lively halls of Berkeley Law.
Then, see what makes Berkeley and the Bay Area so amazing.
Online Information Sessions
Join us for an online applicant information session to learn about the application requirements, our review process, and a little bit about what Berkeley Law has to offer. These sessions will range from general overviews to specific workshops focused on a single topic. You must register for the information session that you would like to attend. Select sessions will be recorded and posted to the webinars page.
Even though we won’t be able to see you in person this fall, we hope that you will join us for a virtual event. We have been busy planning an all virtual recruitment season and have various events and panels that are open for you to explore. We hope you will join us for LSAC digital forums, law school fairs, and various panels and workshops that we have planned.
Speak with an Admissions Counselor
JD Applicants for fall 2021 entry are invited to make a twenty minute Zoom appointment with an admissions counselor. We recommend preparing questions about the admissions process or about the law school. Please note that we do not keep notes on advising appointments and they have no bearing in our admissions process.
Mondays 9am to 1pm
Wednesdays 12pm to 4pm
Thursdays 9am to 1pm
