Q: WHEN DOES REGISTRATION CLOSE?
A: Friday, September 28, 2019 at 12:00 PM PST
Q: HOW DO I CHECK IN AT THE EVENT?
A: For guests arriving on Friday afternoon or Friday night for the CLR Panel or the Executive Education CLE or the BBQ on Steinhart Courtyard, please go to the registration tables in the East Courtyard, on Bancroft Way next to Café Zeb (enter next to the large stone Berkeley Law sign) to pick up your name badge and program.
For those arriving on Saturday morning, registration will open at 10:30am and tables will be located in the East Courtyard on Bancroft Way next to Café Zeb (enter next to the large stone Berkeley Law sign). Please pick up your name badge and program. Please allow time to register and collect your name tag and program and don’t forget to bring your bar ID number so that you can get credit for any CLE program you attend.
Q: WHAT IF I NEED SPECIAL ASSISTANCE?
A: If you are hearing- or vision-impaired, need on-campus transport assistance, or require any ADA special assistance, please email firstname.lastname@example.org before Friday, September 20, and we will be happy to assist you.
Q: WHAT IS THE RECOMMENDED ATTIRE?
A: Casual dress is suggested for Friday’s BBQ. Business casual is recommended for Saturday’s events and activities.
Q: IS THERE PARKING AVAILABLE?
A: Street parking in the neighborhood surrounding Berkeley Law is controlled by parking restrictions (e.g., two-hour limits). If you park in the City of Berkeley, please check carefully for posted parking restrictions. Most parking meters now take both coins and credit cards.
On Friday and Saturday nights, there will likely be concerts at the Greek Theatre, which will impact the amount of parking spaces that are available close to the school. We expect parking to start to fill up after 5:00 pm on both days. The concerts will impact traffic as well as parking. Here is a list of
parking lots near campus and a map of nearby parking structures.
For those of you who have purchased standard parking as part of your reunion registration, you will be parking in the Boalt Lot, which is located behind the law school. Entrance to the Boalt Lot is on Optometry Lane (please find map here). You will access Optometry Lane from Piedmont Ave (opposite Memorial stadium). Your name will be on a list, and there will be a parking attendant in the lot to assist you. If you have registered for valet parking, we will contact you directly nearer the date, with instructions on where to go.
Q: ARE THERE SPECIAL RATES FOR HOTEL ACCOMMODATIONS?
A: There are several hotels on/close to campus that offer UC Berkeley rates. Hotel rates and availability are subject to change and will quite likely be unavailable closer to Alumni Reunion Weekend. Area hotels (please contact them directly for their rates) include:
The Graduate Hotel
