King Hall Community Mourns Alumni Association President John Schick '72

King Hall Alumni Association President John Schick '72, a devoted friend and supporter of UC Davis School of Law, died unexpectedly on December 6 at his home in Stockton.  He was 65 years old.

Schick worked as a highly respected criminal defense attorney in Stockton for more than three decades and taught courses at Humphreys College Laurence Drivon School of Law as an adjunct faculty member before joining the faculty full-time in 2008. A generous donor and frequent volunteer for UC Davis School of Law, Schick joined the Alumni Association Board of Directors in 1998 and began service as Alumni Association President in 2010.  The Alumni Association Board will meet in January to discuss potential successors. 

Humphreys College hosted a "Celebration of Life" event commemorating John Schick on December 10 that included remarks from Dean Kevin R. Johnson.
