Berkeley Exchange Program -deadline Friday, February 7

The Berkeley Exchange Program was designed for the purpose of enhancing the educational opportunities available to law students at both Harvard and Berkeley by providing them with exposure to a different faculty and student body. Each year, the program allows up to five Harvard Law School students to spend their third year studying at Berkeley’s Boalt Hall School of Law. In return, up to five students from Berkeley can spend their third year here at Harvard.

HLS students who wish to be considered for the Exchange Program should submit an application to the Administrative Board via the Dean of Students (send email to dos@law.harvard.edu) by Friday, February 7 at 5pm. The application should be in the form of a letter indicating why you wish to participate in the program. Special attention will be given to academic reasons for wishing to go to Berkeley such as a desire to work with a particular faculty member there, or to take courses not available at Harvard. In any event, the application should include a proposed course of study at Berkeley. Courses at Boalt Hall are listed on their website https://www.law.berkeley.edu/161.htm

Any questions about the Program may be raised with the Dean of Students Office.
