University spokesman George A. Strait Jr. said the training is intended to update and strengthen anti-sexual harassment procedures throughout the campus. He said UC Berkeley officials who developed the programs were mindful of the controversy that led to the resignation of John P. Dwyer.

Perhaps, given the current state of marriage and remarriage, that would be an appropriate proposal. In the United States, almost 50% of first marriages and more than 60% of second marriages end in divorce.

The boy who began life in a Midwest trailer park worked his way as a young man into the chambers of the U.S. Supreme Court, where he clerked for Justice Sandra Day O'Connor. Though at times restrained and even shy, he rose to the top job at one of the nation's leading law schools, displaying a charm in public that sometimes dazzled donors, alumni and colleagues. He became a mentor and friend to students at UC Berkeley's Boalt Hall School of Law; they lined up outside his office to see him.

Spurred by a scandal that toppled UC Berkeley's law school dean last year, University of California regents on Thursday approved a policy prohibiting professors and other faculty from having romantic or sexual relationships with their students.

Unless Rocketdyne wins a last-ditch appeal, letters will be sent the day before Halloween notifying up to 500,000 neighbors of the company's aerospace facilities of a pending federal class-action lawsuit.

A UC Berkeley law professor Wednesday rebutted assertions that faculty members responded timidly to a student who sought help after an alleged sexual assault by the law school's dean. Addressing what she called "mistakes in statements made in the press," professor Eleanor Swift said she counseled a student at length on ways to pursue a sexual harassment complaint against Dean John P. Dwyer, who resigned last week because of the allegation.
