Submitting Events: Instructions & Policies

The Berkeley Law Events Calendar is managed by the Communications Office. It is the main source of information about events happening at the law school.

To add an event to the calendar:

Submit an event using this online form. You will also find a link to this form on the calendar: Click the “Submit an Event” link near the top-right of the page and fill out the form.

Events are subject to approval, and reviewed and published in a timely manner, but not automatically or instantaneously. Approval can take up to one full business day. If your event does not appear on the calendar right away, please be patient and do not re-submit the event. To determine if your event has been published, check the online calendar. Do not send an email asking if it has been received, unless more than one full business day has passed since you submitted it and it’s still not on the calendar.

Please make sure you have reserved a room or event space through the school’s room reservation system. The exception is if your event is off-campus, elsewhere on campus or otherwise does not require a room reservation. Please note that events must be held in wheelchair-accessible locations.

Event submissions that do not include a location will not be approved.

If you need to change the date, time, location, or other information about a published event that you have previously submitted, please do no not re-submit the event; email your updates to calendar@law.berkeley.edu. Updates that are received by Friday at noon will be reflected in the Monday events email.

We do not publish the events of outside groups or organizations on this calendar. The event must be sponsored by a Berkeley Law entity, or include some direct involvement of a Berkeley Law entity or person, relevant to the Berkeley Law audience. Publication of any event is subject to the discretion of the Communications Office.

To have your event included in “Events This Week” email:

The Communications Office sends out an “Events This Week” email every Monday morning, to the entire Berkeley Law community, including students, faculty, and staff. In order for an event to be included in this email, it must be submitted by the previous FRIDAY AT NOON. Event submissions that are not received by Friday at 12:00pm may not appear in the Monday email. This ensures that we have enough time to review the calendar entries and produce the email properly. Even if you miss the deadline, your event will still be published on the online calendar. However, events submitted after Friday at noon or over the weekend may not appear on the calendar until Monday.

Any events that are already on the calendar, no matter how long ago they were submitted, will also be included in the weekly email. No need to re-submit them for that week’s deadline or make a special request.

New events are added throughout the week, and event details such as time and location may change. Everyone is encouraged to visit the online calendar itself for the latest information (rather than rely solely on the Monday email).

There is only one school-wide events email at the beginning of each week. The Communications Office will only send an addendum if our office has made an error or oversight, but cannot send out additional emails about events or corrections that were submitted past the Friday deadline.
