Alumni Gathering at White & Case in Palo Alto
Posted By Kevin R. Johnson, Feb 3, 2016
We had a wonderful alumni event today in Palo Alto, with an enthusiastic group of movers and shakers in Silicon Valley. Bijal Vakil '96, managing partner of the White & Case Palo Alto office, and Nathan Zhang ’13 of the same firm, hosted the event. We had an excellent crowd of 35 or so King Hall faithful.
The main event, Professor Peter Lee, provided the alums with an overview of the amazing intellectual property initiatives at UC Davis. I was able to fill the group in on our interest in helping students and alums in the job market. Assistant Dean for Career Services Craig Compton provided information on how alums could help our students in the job market. I was able to provide information about the great events at the law school. Among the alums in attendance were Cristina Chirica ‘12, Suzanne Graeser ‘87, Negin Yazdani ‘12, and Matthew Currie ‘97.
