King Hall Expands Student Scholarships

During 2011-12, UC Davis School of Law offered more than two
dozen student scholarships to help offset the rising costs of legal
education, reward student achievement, and keep King Hall
accessible to deserving students of all backgrounds.  Now, the Law
School is working with the King Hall community to increase that
number in the years ahead, with two new scholarships established
in recent weeks. Find out how you can help support excellence at
King Hall by giving to King Hall scholarships!

New Video Highlights King Hall Clinics

A new video highlighting the excellence and importance of UC Davis
School of Law clinical programs is now available through the Law
School website.  Produced by Marketing Director Pamela Wu, the
video includes interviews with Dean Kevin R. Johnson and
Immigration Law Clinic Director Amagda Pérez as well as footage of
students working with clients and making educational presentations. 
“Lawyering is not something that can be taught from books alone,”
Dean Johnson states in his interview.  “Our clinical programs are
second to none in the United States.”

King Hall C.A.R.E.S. Program Key to Student Recruitment

Law School recruitment is a highly competitive process, and in
addition to information about rankings, bar passage rates, and LSAT
scores, student applicants want to hear from King Hall alumni about
what to expect if they choose UC Davis School of Law.  That’s why
the King Hall C.A.R.E.S. (Committed to Assist Recruitment &
Enrollment of Students) program, in which alumni volunteers contact
prospective students to talk about UC Davis School of Law’s
academic strengths and unique sense of community, is critical to the
Law School’s ability to recruit the best and brightest.  Volunteer to
help out by signing up for the C.A.R.E.S. program today!
