This year’s participants join 3,500+ prior International Program alumni as the UC Davis School of Law continues to celebrate its global presence. Law school faculty and notable legal experts teach in the programs.

I spoke with a number of the participants at our annual International Law Reception this week. They included: judges and prosecutors from Japan and Korea; lawyers from Baker and McKenzie from Italy, Spain, and Vietnam; a Chilean Supreme Court clerk; three Turkish Securities executives; Chinese lawyers and many other interesting and engaged legal professionals from around the world. They all spoke about the high quality of their educational experiences at UC Davis, the great Davis community, and how much they enjoy being at a top-tier U.S. law school.
