Julia Kahn

Thank you for going above and beyond for the Berkeley Law Public Interest/Public Sector Internship and Career Fair.  Staff who worked on the fair cannot say enough good things about your organization – it was seamless and so together!  We appreciate all the hard work you put into making the event a success.  And it has been lovely seeing students who are saying thank you for the event.

We hope you get at least a minute to breath and looking forward to the next collaboration.

~Sue Schechter and Melanie Rowan on behalf of everyone who worked on Berkeley Law PI/PS Internship and Career Fair

Marisa Ha

Elizabeth (Liz) Granlund

Liz–where do we start? We are incredibly lucky to work with such a kindhearted go-getter. We truly appreciate how you help your colleagues and students (like the PI/PS Fair!), engender fun and community within the Law School (organizing the Halloween Scavenger Hunt), and do such meaningful work at CDO. Keep doing you–we are happy we are in your orbit.

~Your colleagues in Field Placement and the Public Interest Working Group

Jen Covens

The International Human Rights Law Clinic had a media-heavy event last week which involved a lot of pre-event research and coordination.  On top of having to put in a lot of time beforehand, on the day of the event, we were told that someone from the media department had to stay until 7pm to help the technician from the translation company.  Even though she was not planning on staying that late, Jen Covens did so to make sure that we had what we needed.  It was definitely “going the extra mile” and it was very much appreciated!

Alexey Berlind

Alexey–where do we start? Thank you for taking time to answer our questions, fears, etc. so thoroughly and thoughtfully. Such a pleasure to spend some time and get a glimpse into your all-encompassing Law School expertise.

Megan Pham

Shout out to Megan Pham for being essential to the success of the ADP program recruiting and marketing teams. As a student worker with a lot her plate outside of the law school, Megan still always brings her A-game to her work and handles every project with grace, efficiency, supreme effectiveness and a positive attitude to boot. We wouldn’t be able to support our amazing staff recruiters as effectively – and bring more amazing LLM students to Berkeley Law every year – without her. Thanks, Megan!

~Kara Gantner

Cameron Bailey

Cameron has been so patiently instrumental in coordinating media requests with one of our community partners. Thank you for your role in ensuring the event’s success, Cameron!

Yongbin Chang

Yongbin did an exceptional job coordinating a very successful Mental Health Awareness and Wellness Week for the students. He came up with creative new programming and made sure the multiple events ran smoothly.

Sara Malan, Melanie Rowen, Sarra Ziari, and Valerie Castelo

Thank you, Sara and Melanie and Sarra and Valerie – thanks for stepping up in a big way to move the First Annual PI Reception forward last night. And Sara – thanks for the idea and making it happen!

We had almost 200 rsvps and a nice showing last night – and I think students really enjoyed the moment to hang out, nibble and chat – we are at that point in the semester, that many said they needed the break and they were heartened to see so many of their colleagues/friends there. And it was great to get Dean Chemerinsky there for a few minutes to welcome folks and reiterate his support for their paths.
