Fall 2016 OCI Update

Posted By Kevin R. Johnson, Aug 18, 2016

August brings the On-Campus Interview (OCI) program to UC Davis School of Law. 

I saw second and third-year students dressed for success as they waited outside the interview suites at the Hyatt Place hotel on campus.  We had an incredible turnout of alumni – and an elite list of law firms -- interviewing King Hall students for their law firms. 

Among others, Suzanne Graeser ‘87, Kim Chase ’07 (alumni board), Alex Beroukhim ’01, Steven Levine ’99, Kunyu Ching ’13, Robin Finch ’01, Megan Rivetti ’09, Matthew Tolve ’09, Jim Soong ’95, Alan Ouellette ’10, Brendan McDonnell ’87, Herman Cheung ’13, Andrew Bluth ’04, Derek Mayor ’15, John Pingel ’09, Ian Hlatky ’13, Tara Shabahang ‘14, Mark Easter ‘89, David Christy '14, Courtney Linn '90, Kathryn Bilder ’14, Julie Schwartz ’08, Steve Boutin '72, and Kim Lucia '09, Alisha Patterson ’10, Baraa Kahf ’08, David Kornbluh ’92, Adrianna Rubino 14, Chad Mahalich ’07, Daniela Maldonado ’08, Christina Poulsen ’09, Cindy L. Dole '09, Scott Tester '12, Mark Hartney ’88, Michael Murza ’13, Katharine Buddingh ’12, Marshall Baker ’14, Eric Robinson ’97, Errol Dauis ’11, Marina Mankaryous ’12, and Dave Chidlaw ‘89 returned to King Hall.  A number of prominent New York based firms with growing Silicon Valley offices, such as Simpson Thacher & Bartlett, Davis Polk & Wardwell, Sullivan & Cromwell and other firms interviewed King Hall students on the Peninsula.

I had lunch with the employers and heard how well-prepared our students were for the interviews.  Senior Associate Dean for Academic Affairs Madhavi Sunder lunched with the students as well.  It was great to hear the interviewers rave about how great our students were and how it was very hard to narrow the field of candidates!
