Alumni Association Board of Directors

Alumni Association

First convened in 1973, the UC Davis School of Law Alumni Association was formed to further the general interests of the School of Law, to promote close ties among the alumni of the School of Law, to advance the cause of legal education, and to improve the administration of justice.  Today, all alumni are members of the association without dues, and all are encouraged to support the school through the King Hall Annual Fund.

The Alumni Association is governed by its Board of Directors, which convenes quarterly each year to receive a report from the Dean regarding student and faculty activities, to address current alumni activities including support for the Annual Fund, class reunions, the Distinguished Alumna/us and Rising Star Alumna/us Awards, Alumni Scholarship Award, and other matters, and to represent alumni at student activities and other community activities.

The Law School Alumni Association Board's mission is to further the general interests of the School of Law, promote close ties among the alumni and King Hall, advance the cause of legal education, and improve the administration of justice.
