Welcome, class of 2022 -- the most diverse in the law school's history

UC Davis School of Law is proud to welcome the 235 highly accomplished students of the Class of 2022. Students hail from Brown, Princeton, Columbia, Penn, all the UC campuses, and many other top-tier universities. The class is the most diverse ever — students of color compose 57 percent of the class, and women make up 58 percent. A quarter of the students are the first in their families to graduate from college.

The incoming students are of the highest academic quality, with a 162 median LSAT score and 3.6+ median GPA. About 40 percent will receive need-based aid.

Nine students are alumni of the King Hall Outreach Program, an award-winning program that prepares socioeconomically disadvantaged and first-generation students for the highly competitive law school admissions process. The extraordinary class of 2022 includes 10 military veterans, three Division I athletes, and students who have worked as teachers, in precious metals trading, in the artificial intelligence technology industry, with FEMA, and with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, the Peace Corps (in Liberia) and the United Farm Workers Foundation.

We also welcome 38 new students in our Master of Laws class. The students come from Brazil, China, Colombia, Egypt, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, Korea, Pakistan, Poland, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, and Uzbekistan. They join 19 continuing LL.M. students.
