On August 14th and 18th, Amy Oppenheimer gave the incoming 1L students of Berkeley Law their orientation to Title IX. Amy presented to 220 LLM students from all over the world, and 280 incoming JD students on sexual harassment and sexual violence. The presentation covered the history of Title IX, definitions and concepts, and resources available to Berkeley Law students. Alezah Trigueros also helped Amy illustrate concepts through some role-playing during the presentation.
We were pleased to see the University of California Berkeley and Berkeley Law taking this issue seriously, and to be a small part of the new Dean’s beginnings at the law school. It is exciting to have Dean Chemerinsky in Berkeley, where our firm is located, and we look forward to partnering with Berkeley Law in the future.
