Building Opportunities

Our Forever King Hall program gives you the opportunity to associate your name or those you wish to honor with the UC Davis School of Law—forever.

King Hall is more than brick and mortar—it is the cornerstone of our School—it is the heart, and our people and programs are its soul. The expansion and renovation of King Hall is a once-in-a-generation opportunity. This is the Law School's critical next step, the linchpin needed to achieve our academic and public service aspirations. As a great public law school with a distinctive mission, we expect to serve as a model for the legal education of a new generation of ethical professionals eager to bring their heightened public service orientation to bear on the most pressing social and legal problems of our day. Expanding and renovating King Hall will sustain and infuse new life into the School of Law.

The new King Hall will serve as a monument to all those who have come before and will celebrate the public/private partnership that makes the building possible.
