Ryan Tran

Ryan has been so helpful all semester, really stepping up/jumping with his knowledge and patience to help me with my computer woes (turning it on, skype, and my many other ‘very technical issues’).  He has been wonderful and yesterday he went above and beyond to help me get ready for an international trip to make sure my computer and more was good to go – and that I understood how to access Berkeley Law drives/files when I am away.  He answered many questions and many of the same questions several times over to make sure I was clear on the answers!

Thank you, you are a great addition to that team (of Montie!) – and so grateful you are here at Berkeley Law,

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.

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.

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.
