About Edwin (He/Him)
Edwin grew up in San Diego and is a first-generation college student currently in his second year at Berkeley Law. After graduating from UC San Diego in 2010 as a Literature major, he joined Teach For America and moved to New York City. There, he earned a master’s degree in education and spent seven years working at low-income schools in Brooklyn. During that time, Edwin also helped train the organization’s curriculum instructors. In 2017, gearing up for a new career in international law, he moved to Frankfurt, Germany.
While living abroad, Edwin prepared for and completed the law school application process, flying back to New York City to take the LSAT. With UC Berkeley as his North Star, he applied through the school’s binding early decision program, which offers an automatic $75K scholarship. In July 2019 he returned to California to start his studies. At Berkeley Law, Edwin is focusing on international business law. He is also involved in affinity groups such as La Raza Law Students’ Association and Queer Caucus.
The Central Valley Scholars Law School Webinar, hosted by Edwin Gonzalez (He/Him) and Joseph Lindsay (He/Him), will focus on the law school experience, strategizing for the LSAT, navigating the application process, the nuts & bolts of financial aid, and how to (finally!) select a school after receiving offers.
