University of California Davis School of Law benefits from its proximity to the state capital, the Bay Area and Silicon Valley, giving students not only externship opportunities but the chance to network and build their careers.

Dean Kevin R. Johnson said the school’s commitment to diversity creates a uniquely collaborative and accessible environment. Indeed, it was ranked as the second most diverse law school according to preLaw's most recent ranking on the subject. Johnson is a groundbreaker himself. He was the first Hispanic to be named dean of a UC law school. He was recently reappointed to his third term in that leadership position. 

“UC Davis School of Law is dedicated to the principles of social justice and equality espoused by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., for whom our law school building is named,” Johnson said. “We are also one of the few law schools to be ranked in the top 40 overall and also in top 40 diversity rankings.”

The school has a very low 10.1-to-1 student-to-faculty ratio, and averages 64 students per each first-year class.
