The Journal meets almost every Tuesday during the semester, from 12:50-1:50 in room 10. Prospective members are more than welcome to join.

If interested, please fill visit our office and fill out a hardcopy membership form.

Minimum membership requirements include the following:

  • Payment of dues, which can be waived for financial hardship. (For 2017-2018, the dues were $25/semester or $40/year.)
  • Attending at least 6 meetings each semester.
  • Reading at least 6 articles each semester.
  • Participating in three editing assignments, including source collection, cite checking, and line editing.

BGLJ wants to make membership more accessible for students working on other affinity journals. If you are currently a member of a Berkeley Law affinity journal and are interested in our work-share policy, please contact us!

Other opportunities to be involved in journal work are often available, including the opportunity to publish in the journal as a member. BGLJ is proud to offer extensive training in journal editing, so we do not require prior editing experience in order to become a member. The skills you can gain with us will benefit you throughout your legal career.

Please email bglj@berkeley.edu if you have any questions.
