UC Davis School of Law officially opened the King Hall building's new
east wing with a Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony and Open House on
September 3. More than 250 faculty, students, staff, alumni, university
officials, and special guests turned out to celebrate the occasion, listen
to speakers including Dean Kevin R. Johnson and UC Davis
Chancellor Linda Katehi, watch the ribbon-cutting, and tour the
spectacular new facility.

Commission on Judicial Appointments on Governor Arnold

as Chief Justice of California.
King Hall faculty, staff, students, and alumni welcomed the
UC Davis School of Law Class of 2013 at a barbeque hosted by the
Law School on August 15 at Putah Creek Lodge. The event featured
remarks from Dean Kevin R. Johnson, President of the King Hall
Alumni Association John Schick '72, and Law Students Association
President Scott Vignos '11.
For William N. Brieger, the low-cost, high-quality legal education
he received at King Hall enabled him to choose the legal career that
was most right for him, working for the California Attorney General to
protect the state’s environment. That’s why Brieger has supported the
Law School by volunteering in several capacities, and why he joined
with fellow alum Rachel Krevans ’84 to establish the Brieger-Krevans
Scholarship for King Hall students.
When Pamela S. Karlan visits King Hall September 29 to lecture on
"The Court, the Closet, and the First Amendment," the event will be
more than an opportunity for UC Davis School of Law students and
faculty to hear one of the nation’s leading experts on voting and the
political process. It will be the debut of the Central Valley Foundation/
James B. McClatchy Lecture on the First Amendment, the latest
addition to the set of donor-supported lectures and symposia that help
keep UC Davis School of Law at the leading edge of legal education.
