King Hall Alumni Board Welcomes Kimberly Lucia '09, Amal Abu-Rahma '97

The King Hall Alumni Association Board of Directors has welcomed two new members to its ranks: Kimberly Lucia '09 and Amal Abu-Rahma '97.  They will work with President Kara Ueda '00 and 23 other alumni volunteers on the board to further the interests of the School of Law, promote close ties among alumni, advance the cause of legal education, and improve the administration of justice.

Kimberly Lucia is an associate at Boutin Jones, the Sacramento firm founded by past Alumni Board President and current board member Steve Boutin '72. She is a member of the firm's Employment Law and Litigation practice groups, and her practice involves representing clients in all areas of employment law, including drafting employee handbooks and policies, negotiating severance agreements and conducting employment investigations.   Lucia has long been an active member of the King Hall community.  As a student, she received the Frank and Margaret Johns Award for her commitment to King Hall, was an editor with the UC Davis Law Review, and president of the Lambda Law Students, among many other activities.  She is currently on the Board for the Women Lawyers of Sacramento, and is a member of the Sacramento County Bar Association's Labor and Employment Section, the Sacramento Barrister's Club, and the Milton L. Schwartz David F. Levi American Inn of Court.

Amal Abu-Rahma  is the senior-most attorney in the Office of Enforcement of the California Department of Managed Health Care, where she has been representing the State of California in regulating Health Care Service Plans and HMOs for the past 10 years, litigating against licensees and enforcing statutory mandates to ensure accountability and quality of care in the managed care industry.  She has been credited with implementing innovative investigatory techniques that enabled the Department to achieve groundbreaking results in collecting administrative penalties totaling more than $5 million. She is also active in the community, serving on the Board of Directors of the National Association of Managed Care Regulators and on the Board of Women Lawyers of Sacramento, in addition to volunteering as an arbitrator for the Better Business Bureau.

The Alumni Board meets three times per year, usually in August, late January or early February, and April.  Members serve three-year terms, and may volunteer on a range of committees and subcommittees focused on fundraising, student outreach, faculty outreach, alumni relations, and other initiatives.  To find out how you can be part of the King Hall Alumni Association Board of Directors, please contact Christian Rockwood, Associate Director of Annual and Special Funds, a
