Virtual Engagement

Applicant Advising & Office Hours with Dean Alvarez

We offer both individual appointments and Office Hours with the Dean of Admissions. Not sure which one to attend? We recommend starting with Office Hours, as many of our applicants have similar questions. If your matter is more personal, an individual appointment is recommended.

Take a moment to review our website and prospectus before advising appointments to get general information about the law school and our application requirements. If you are looking for a detailed overview of our application and requirements, please join us for an upcoming webinar or view previously recorded webinars on our website. Please note that we do not perform prior application, personal statement, addenda, or resume reviews during individual appointments.

Click on the date to check availability. Individual appointments are approximately 20 minutes long, and office hours with the Dean are one hour long.

Meet Our Students

Interested in chatting with current Berkeley Law Students? Feel free to email an Admissions Ambassador. You can read their profiles and more on our Meet Our Students page (new ambassador bios will be posted in October). You can also reach out to any student organizations to learn about how you can find your community at law school.

Upcoming Information Sessions

Join us for a virtual applicant information session to learn about the application requirements, our review process, and a little bit about what Berkeley Law has to offer. You must register for the information session that you would like to attend.

There are no upcoming applicant information sessions. We invite you to watch previously recorded sessions at the bottom of this page.

Recordings of select information sessions will be posted for future viewing.

If you require an accommodation for effective communication (ASL interpreting/CART captioning, alternative media formats, etc.) to fully participate in any of our information sessions, please contact Chelsea Hackett at chackett@law.berkeley.edu with as much advance notice as possible and at least 7-10 days in advance of the event.
