President Yudof Visits King Hall

Posted By Kevin R. Johnson, Oct 1, 2010

Yesterday, University of California President Mark Yudof visited the UC Davis campus. We were very pleased that he visited the law school in the afternoon. Senior Assistant Dean for Administration Adam Talley led a tour of the new wing of King Hall for President Yudof, accompanied by Chancellor Linda Katehi and her husband Spyros Tseregounis. Yudof seemed particularly impressed by the Kalmanovitz Appellate Courtroom and the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. statue (as well as the wonderful artwork, much of it from the Gorman Museum, throughout the new wing.). After the tour, President Yudof, who taught constitutional law at Texas for many years and remains a devoted student of the Supreme Court, met with our King Hall con law faculty: Associate Dean and Professor of Law Vik Amar and Professors Alan Brownstein and Carlton Larson. They had a nice discussion on the First Amendment, the Supreme Court, and the evolution of constitutional law. Yudof ended the afternoon with a meeting to discuss matters of student concern with UC Davis students, including law student Errol Dauis, editor-in-chief of the UC Davis Law Review.
