Participation in the law journals enhances the learning experience for Berkeley Law students by providing opportunities to develop and improve legal writing and research skills, with in-depth exposure to a rapidly expanding body of law that augments general course work. Members of Berkeley Law journals are directly involved in all aspects of the publication process—from article evaluation and acceptance through the editorial and printing processes. In keeping with Berkeley Law’s spirit of cooperative education, journal membership is open to all students, with the exception of the California Law Review, which holds an annual writing competition to select its membership. First-year students are welcome and encouraged to participate in the law journals.
