King Hall Annual Fund Keeps the Dream Alive
Alumni gifts to the King Hall Annual Fund supported a wide range of UC Davis School of Law programs and expanded the educational opportunities available to students throughout the course of the 2010-11 academic year, funding activities such as:
- Moot court and mock trial competitions, including the annual Irving L. Neumiller Memorial Moot Court Competition at King Hall as well as travel to the Tulane University Law School Sports Law Moot Court Competition in New Orleans, the Giles Sutherland Rich Memorial Moot Court Competition in Palo Alto, and the Luke Charles Moore Invitational Civil Rights Moot Court Competition in Washington, D.C.
- Lectures and symposia including the well-attended, student-organized Law Review Symposium on "The Public Trust Doctrine: 30 Years Later" and "Bayh-Dole @ 30," a conference on patent law and intellectual property jointly sponsored with the UC Davis Division of Social Sciences, Center for Science and Innovation Studies, and Science and Technology Studies Program.
- Public service work such as the Humanitarian Aid Legal Organization (HALO) trip to Biloxi, Mississippi to provide legal aid for victims of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
- Special events organized by student organizations, such as the La Raza Law Students' César Chávez Week and annual Lorenzo Patiño Awards Banquet.
- King Hall clinical programs, including the UC Davis Immigration Law Clinic, where students have participated in naturalization workshops, represented clients in immigration court, assisted public defenders with non-citizen clients, and more.
With state support for the Law School increasingly uncertain, the Annual Fund has become a critically important tool for attracting and maintaining a diverse student body, fostering a cooperative and supportive atmosphere, and providing students and faculty with the resources needed to provide an unsurpassed level of legal education. The King Hall Annual Fund is 100 percent dependent on private support. Please consider a gift to the Annual Fund today!
