2nd period

Berkeley University would be a great university for me because there are many majors and the major I want to study is there too. Also they have many fun events and things to do. I also want to go because it is a great school and it will really help me.

This University of Berkeley is one of the highest ranked universities  in U.S news. It occupies 1,232 acres on the eastern side of San Francisco. And was establishes in 1868, also it offers about 350 undergraduate and graduate degree programs. Their mascot is a golden bear and the names is Oski. Also in 1873, the university moved to San Francisco. And when it barely opened there were only 40 students.

Primary Source

In career cruising Candice said that criminal lawyers have to work well in front of public and have to react fast. They also have to work well under pressure. And you have to always remember court dates and be very organized. Also most prosecutors do have their positions for life. The demand for criminal lawyer will probably increase because poverty and drug addiction are still taking place. Also some lawyers work from 8:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m..
