For Employers

The Berkeley Law Career Development Office is committed to helping employers connect with Berkeley Law students.

We work closely with our students and alumni to help them find opportunities that fit their long-term career objectives.

About Berkeley Law Grading

To help employers evaluate the academic records of Berkeley Law students, the CDO offers a detailed explanation of Berkeley Law’s grading system.

About Contacting 1L Students

The Career Development Office is a member of the National Association for Law Placement (NALP), and as such we adhere to the NALP Principles and Standards related to the recruiting of law students. We also expect employers using the services of our office to be cognizant of and abide by these Principles and Standards.

Accordingly, the CDO does not make its services related to job searching available to first-year students prior to October 15. In addition, we require that employers not communicate directly or indirectly with first-year students before December 1. Invitations to social functions scheduled between mid-August and December 1 should be directed only to second- and third-year students.
