Looking toward a brighter future.
Gift by gift. Year by year. Side by side.
Community defines UC Davis School of Law, in great times and challenging times. King Hall’s famous cooperative spirit is sustaining us during these difficult days. Students, faculty and staff adapted quickly and graciously to unprecedented demands, working together as we moved teaching and operations online.
But the King Hall spirit always has extended beyond the walls of the building, anyway, to our extraordinary network of devoted alumni and friends. Knowing we belong to a unified community strengthens our resilience. Our supporters remind us of King Hall’s rich history, motivate us to face today’s challenges collectively, and inspire us to look toward a brighter future.
Thanks to our alumni who have started the giving process by connecting their own generosity to attainable goals for others. Their leading gifts reflect our top giving priorities during this unforeseen crisis.
The Dean’s Discretionary Fund provides immediate relief to students in need during the current public health crisis, to help provide food security, shelter safety, counseling, and other resources. We will focus additional resources on securing summer employment for students, a vital step in their paths as young professionals.
The King Hall Scholarship Fund helps keep an outstanding legal education available to the best and brightest students regardless of background. Our class of 2022 is our most diverse yet, and we remain committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
The King Hall Annual Fund supports lectures, moot-court competitions and other activities that offer our students practical experience and add value to a UC Davis law degree.
Student Organizations are where students form friendships, memories and leadership skills. They are sorely missed these days, with students following directives to stay at home. Let’s give them a warm King Hall welcome back when they return this fall.
The Immigration Law Clinic continues its vital work on behalf of migrants in dire circumstances, including detained children.
