  • $5,000+ King Hall Society*
  • $2,500-4,999 Barrett Society*
  • $1,000-2,499 Senior Partner
  • $500-999 Partner
  • $250-499 Associate
  • Up to $250 Donor

*Members of the King Hall Society and Barrett Society will be invited to join the Dean’s Leadership Circle (information listed below).

Dean's Leadership Circle

Members of the Barrett Society and the King Hall Society and all other donors who make a gift of $2,500 or more become members of the Dean’s Leadership Circle the years they make qualifying gifts. The Dean’s Leadership Circle recognizes donors who make leadership-level gifts to the law school on an annual basis. Members of the Circle receive special announcements and invitations to exclusive receptions and special events, including: forums with the Dean, guest speakers, and VIP receptions. Members will also receive preferred seating for all special lectures and MCLE, and will be recognized prominently in King Hall and in the King Hall Counselor.

Lifetime Gifts

UC Davis School of Law appreciates all financial contributions. In addition to the King Hall Annual Fund, many choose to support the school in other significant ways, such as the campaign for the renovation and expansion of King Hall and endowments for scholarships and faculty chairs. The lifetime giving societies recognize total accumulated financial support of King Hall. Donors whose lifetime giving exceeds $25,000 will be recognized on the King Hall Donor Wall and in the King Hall Counselor, in the following ways:

21st Century Club

The 21st Century Club recognizes donors who have provided for the UC Davis School of Law through bequests and other planned gifts. We encourage alumni, friends, and others to inform us of any bequests and planned gifts that have been made so that we may recognize their generosity to the Law School. Additionally, members of the Law School's 21st Century Club are eligible for the UC Davis Campus Peter J. and Carolee W. Shields Society. As they say, membership has its benefits and for our Shields Society members that includes an invitation to our annual fall luncheon, your name listed in perpetuity on the official Shields Society registry (if you wish) and a unique Shields Society pin and certificate.

Building Expansion and Renovation

Many alumni, friends, foundations and others have shown their support of King Hall by giving to the King Hall Expansion and Renovation Project. This once-in-a-generation opportunity will make a significant impact on the future of students, faculty, and the entire King Hall Community. We are grateful to those who have stepped up and supported this critical project.

  • $1,000,000+ Platinum Legacy Society
  • $500,000-999,999 Gold Legacy Society
  • $100,000-499,999 Century Club
  • $50,000-99,999 Benefactor
  • $25,000-$49,999 Patron

The UC Davis School Law reserves the right at its sole discretion to amend these methods of donor recognition.
