Join us this fall, September 16-18, to celebrate our shared love of this school and its remarkable community. In addition to MCLE panels and an exciting tailgate party and Cal Bears vs. Texas football game, the schedule is packed with opportunities to reconnect with friends, grow your network, and get to know the vibrant place that Berkeley Law is today. 

All Boalt graduates are invited. Reunion dinners will be held for members of classes ending in '1 & '6. There is also a special Golden Circle Brunch planned for classes 1961 and earlier.

Like  Berkeley Law Reunion 2016  on Facebook and follow  @BoaltAlumni  on Twitter for Reunion updates. Join the conversation by sharing photos from your time at Boalt with class year and #BoaltReunion2016.
We asked the  Berkeley Center for Law Business and the Economy faculty  for their top summer reading recommendations. So before you hit the beach, put down that mobile device and pick up one of these mind-expanding books. You won’t regret it!
