Area of Concentration
At UC Davis School of Law, the curriculum is designed to provide a solid foundation of practical knowledge and skills that enable our graduates to pursue careers in whatever area of legal practice they may choose, from public service to business litigation to legal scholarship.
At UC Davis School of Law, students enjoy not only outstanding academic training, but also the opportunity to hone practical skills. Students can write for six student-run journals, advocate for clients in our five clinics, and work in our externship program. Students participate in Moot Court, Trial Advocacy, and Negotiation competitions.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
UC Davis Law has a long history of dedication to diversity, equity and inclusion. From our majority-minority faculty to our diverse student body and curriculum, we actively seek a learning community where students and scholars engage in diverse areas of the law, with a variety of people, and ideas different from their own.
The School of Law has eight certificate programs that allow student's specialization to be recognized upon graduation.
The UCDC Law Program is a uniquely collaborative semester-long externship program in Washington, D.C., combining a weekly seminar with a full-time field placement to offer law students an unparalleled opportunity to learn how federal statutes, regulations, and policies are made, changed, and understood in the nation's capital.
Students in the King Hall’s Externship Program expand on their legal education outside “the four walls” of the school by earning academic credit for field placements in a government, judicial or public interest law office.
