    Re: UC Davis School of Law (King Hall) -- Full ABA

    The University of California, Davis, School of Law (Martin Luther King, Jr. Hall), referred to as UC Davis School of Law and commonly known as King Hall and UC Davis Law, is an American Bar Association-accredited law school located in Davis, California on the campus of the University of California, Davis. By design, UC Davis School of Law is the smallest of the five law schools in the University of California system, with a total enrollment of just under 600 students. Located in a building named for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and commonly referred to as King Hall, the School is deeply committed to preserving Dr. King's ideal of social and political justice.

    The School's traditional and emerging areas of study include business law, criminal law and procedure, environmental and natural resources law, health care law and bioethics, human rights and social justice law, intellectual property law, immigration law, international and comparative law, constitutional law, and public interest law. Certificate programs are offered in Public Service Law, Environment and Natural Resources Law, and Pro Bono Service.


    The law school is currently undergoing $25 million expansion project that is set to be completed in Fall of 2010. The project will add an additional wing to the law school's current building, adding nearly 30 percent more assignable square feet to provide for additional classrooms, offices, and a new courtroom, named the Paul and Lydia Kalmanovitz Appellate Courtroom in honor of a $1 million gift to the project from the Kalmanovitz Charitable Foundation. (Plans are already underway to host arguments in the new courtroom by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, California Supreme Court, and California Court of Appeal.) The project also includes major renovations to the existing structure that will improve aesthetics and traffic flow as well as provide the infrastructure necessary for new technologies. Construction information, floor plans, and a live construction camera are all available on the school's website.

    International Legal Studies at King Hall


    The California International Law Center at King Hall (CILC, pronounced "silk") enriches international legal studies at the law school by fostering the work of faculty, students, and alumni in international, comparative, and transnational law. Programs include a speakers' series and curriculum and career development. Also key to CILC's mission are partnerships with international law and human rights organizations; for example, its partnership on Darfur, with the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice & Human Rights, and its Academic Partnership with the American Society of International Law and ASIL-West. Advising CILC are councils made up of King Hall faculty members and other internationally known scholars.
