Media Advisory: UC Davis School of Law to present U.S. Supreme Court Year in Review (2016 term)

I am so pleased that the School of Law is presenting a panel discussion next week on the 2016 Supreme Court term. Special thanks to Marc Levinson '73 and the Sacramento office of law firm Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP for hosting us.

Here is the media advisory that just went to the press this week. Note the line that reads, "UC Davis School of Law hopes to make this the first of an annual series of 'U.S. Supreme Court Year in Review' events"!
