SF Alumni and Admitted Students Reception Hosted by Scott McNutt '82
Posted By Kevin R. Johnson, Mar 30, 2016
UC Davis School of Law had a lovely alumni/admitted students reception at the firm of Scott McNutt ‘82 in the trendy SoMa (that’s South of Market) area of San Francisco last week. Scott graciously hosted the event in his firm's new building, which has been recently renovated in elegant fashion.
We had a great turnout and the alums were the best recruiters imaginable for the admitted students, who represented a number of schools including UC Berkeley, Oberlin, University of Texas, Indiana, and many other schools. I offered some recent news from King Hall, including the appearance of Chief Justice of California Tani Cantil-Sakauye ‘84 at the Celebrating King Hall event, the new UC Sacramento Law Scholars externship program, our new Student Wellness Initiative, and more. Scott McNutt offered sage advice on the School of Law and the practice of law in the 21st century. We had a good mix of alums, including former Law Students Association President Victoria Hassid ‘10, Jennifer Yazdi ‘14, Alumni Board Member Gene Woo ‘85, Thomas Rupp ‘11, and many more.
Dean of Admissions Kristen Mercado was in attendance to provide admission advice as only the beloved "Dean M" could. Dean of Career Services Craig Compton told the students about the job prospects for our alums.
It was truly a celebratory evening in the City by the Bay!
