The Berkeley Journal of African-American Law & Policy (BJALP) is dedicated to addressing legal and policy issues that affect African-American communities and people of color, in general. BJALP publishes work on such matters as constitutional law, criminal justice, civil rights, political representation and participation, fair housing, economic development, immigration, health issues and welfare, and other issues affecting the African Diaspora. BJALP welcomes all relevant submissions, including scholarly articles, student-authored notes and comments, book reviews, and essays.

"The publication will work toward ultimately improving conditions for African-American communities by infusing intellectual discourse with provocative and innovative scholarship, thus deepening thinking about policy options and choices."

To this end, BJALP publishes annually and hosts symposia aimed at the UC Berkeley campus, the surrounding communities, and the legal profession at large.
