We will begin offering designated 种族和法律 certificate courses in Fall 2018. We expect the Class of 2021 to be the first class *eligible for the certificate.
*Due to the fact that all required courses cannot be offered every year, the 种族和法律 Certificate must be completed over the course of multiple years at Berkeley Law. Accordingly, it is only open to students in the three-year J.D. program.
J.D.学生们 must complete the following to be eligible for the Certificate:
1. 课程 Requirement
- 种族和法律 (mandatory)
- 第三道菜必须在上市 种族和法律 category or subcategory.
At least 1 course in the law school’s clinical program (in-house or East Bay 社区 Law Center) with a substantial focus on race and racial inequality in the United States or completion of a field placement with a substantial focus on race and racial inequality in the 美国.
3. Writing Requirement
One paper or other written product on a race-and-law topic that meets the standards for either Option 1 or Option 2 of the J.D. writing requirement. Refer to the 学术规则 for the complete scope and standards of this requirement. 学生们 should submit a paper written to fulfill a course requirement at Berkeley Law; LAW 299 individual research-and-writing projects can also meet this requirement. (Writing completed in a qualifying Clinic or field placement may satisfy this requirement. Writing completed in a course that is not substantially about race may still qualify if the paper itself has a substantial focus on race and racial inequality.)
4. Activity Requirement
Attendance at a minimum of four thelton即恒基中心为社会正义 designated 种族和法律 programs.
There is some flexibility in the application of the certificate requirements, allowing students to substitute other curricular activities for a shortfall in the formal requirements. 学生们 who are close to meeting the Race and Law certificate requirements may submit a 种族和法律 certificate application along with a brief (one paragraph) request for a variance.
