Obtain Information, Plan Your Visit, Meet a Counselor



We welcome you to learn more about Berkeley Law School. Listed below are some of the ways you can connect with an Admissions Office representative.

Attend An Information Session

We encourage you to visit Berkeley Law School and hope that our “Plan Your Visit” section will help you to make the most of your time. We offer school tours followed by a one-hour applicant information session with the Dean of Admissions three times each fall. Time is reserved to answer questions. Find out when the tours and information sessions will be held by accessing the calendar here.

Meet an Admissions Counselor

Admission counselors are available to answer your questions about the J.D. program. Advising appointments are generally offered from 9:00 am to noon during weekdays. Schedule an appointment on our appointment system. Please note that we do not keep notes on advising appointments and they have no bearing in our admissions process. We do not conduct personal statement or resume reviews, nor can we access current or prior applications for review or feedback. We recommend arriving with some questions prepared about the admissions process or about the law school. To learn more about our programs, we recommend reviewing our website, our prospectus, and our webinars
