              The King Hall Law School USENET FAQ Part 6 of 9
             Frequently Asked Questions at and about King Hall
             (c) Copyright 1995 & 1996 by David F. Prenatt, Jr.


4.3)  THE THIRD YEAR OF LAW SCHOOL AT KING HALL.

4.3.1)  Why is there a third year of law school?

     Apparently, to make sure that your second year is not your last year.
     The first year they scare you to death; the second year they work you
     to death; and the third year, they bore you to death.  Keep this in
     mind when planning your course schedule.

4.3.2)  What does one do during the third year of law school?

     Different people do different things, but most of the time the third
     year of law school is simply a recapitulation of the second year.  The
     changing of the guard is effected on Law Review and Moot Court as new
     boards are elected to these programs.  Your third year is also a good
     time to do a clinical.

4.4)  LAW STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS.

     [Note:  I have specifically decided against including a list and
     description of the various law student organizations at King Hall.
     You will find such a list and description in the application pamphlet
     that is sent out to prospective law school applicants; readers with a
     web browser may visit the King Hall Student Organizations Web Page on
     the World Wide Web (<http://kinghall.ucdavis.edu/pages/stuorg.htm >).
          Virtually all of the law student organizations at King Hall are
     chartered through the University and funded primarily through the Law
     Student Association (LSA) and bake sales.  Each organization defines
     its own purpose, and as each law student organization has an open
     membership, each organization is best defined by those students who
     choose to become its members.  One student organization that purported
     to represent a particular ethnic/cultural group held a vote wherein
     two of its members voted to exclude students who were not members of
     that particular ethnic/cultural group.  A big controversy erupted when
     the names of the two members so voting were published on the King Hall
     dayboard by one of the members who would have been excluded had the
     vote carried.
          During my tenure as a law student at King Hall, I belonged to a
     number of student organizations that I thought were worthwhile, and I
     served as the Vice President of the King Hall Federalist Society
     (<http://kinghall.ucdavis.edu/stu_org/fed_soc/ >).  I also patronized
     all of the fund raising activities and social events that interested
     me without regard for which student organizations were hosting or
     sponsoring it.  As a general rule, I think it is foolish to boycott an
     unpopular organization.

4.5)  SERVICES AVAILABLE TO KING HALL STUDENTS.

4.5.1)  SERVICES AVAILABLE TO LAW STUDENTS THROUGH KING HALL.

4.5.1.1)  LIBRARY SERVICES AT KING HALL.

     Readers with a web browser may visit the King Hall Law Library Home
     Page on the World Wide Web:

          <http://kinghall.ucdavis.edu/library/lawlib.htm >


4.5.1.1.1)  What library services are available to law students at King
            Hall?

     All King Hall students, faculty, and staff are issued a key to the
     building and have access to the law library (other than the reserve
     section) 24 hours a day.  Most books may be checked out to your study
     carrel, which you share with other students until your third year of
     law school.  In addition, the law library catalog is available by
     telnet at innopac.ucdavis.edu (<telnet:innopac.ucdavis.edu >; account
     and password=guest).  Check with the Law School Library Reference Desk
     at (916)752-3327 for more information on the various library services
     available to King Hall students.

4.5.1.1.2)  What should I do if I encounter trespassers after hours in the
            library at King Hall?

     You have many options to deal with trespassers at King Hall, but you
     are not obliged to do anything about them.  U.C. Davis is a public
     university, and members of the general public have a right to use the
     facilities at the law school to study or do legal research.  However,
     if someone doesn't have a key to King Hall, they don't have a right to
     be in the building after the law library closes.
          The official policy of the law school is that no one without a
     key to the building is allowed to be in King Hall after the law
     library closes, but this policy is not strictly enforced.  I always
     treated trespassers as "uninvited guests" and tolerated them unless
     they did something that bothered me.  However, if you want trespassers
     to leave, you don't need to give any justification.  Simply place a
     call to the campus police, and the campus police will get rid of the
     trespassers very quickly.

4.5.1.2)  Financial Aid.

     For information about Financial Aid, contact the King Hall Financial
     Aid Director Lu Bastian  (<mailto:lrbastian@ucdavis.edu >) in person
     or at (916)752-6573.  She and her staff, currently one Cyndie Alvarez
     Necoechea (<mailto:calvarez@ucdavis.edu >), have my unequivocal
     endorsement.
          Readers with a web browser may visit the Law School Financial Aid
     Home Page on the World Wide Web:

          <http://kinghall.ucdavis.edu/pages/financ.htm >


4.5.1.3)  Career Services. [Rev]

     For information about Career Services, contact the King Hall Career
     Sevices Director Jane Thomson (<mailto:jthomson@ucdavis.edu >) at
     (916)752-6574.  See also Section 4.6.5 for information on career
     planning resources on the Internet.

4.5.1.4)  The Perfect Tender Infant Care Co-op.

     Student volunteers, some of them parents themselves, staff the Perfect
     Tender Infant Care Co-op, which cares for the infants (under one year)
     of law students.

4.5.1.5)  Computer Services at King Hall.

     For information about Computer Services at King Hall, contact Computer
     Specialist Steve Langford (<mailto:sdlangford@ucdavis.edu >) at
     (916)752-SLOW.  While no one has all the answers, Steve has more
     answers about computers than most people do, and if he doesn't have
     immediate answers to your computer questions, he will usually be able
     to refer you to someone else who does.  See Section 11.2 for more
     information about computer services at King Hall.

4.5.1.6)  Food at King Hall.

     Between 9am and Noon during most school days, you stand about a 50/50
     chance of encountering a bake sale downstairs.  Similarly on school
     days, you stand about a 1 in 5 chance that some organization is
     offering free food to encourage attendance at one of its meetings.  If
     all else fails, there are several vending machines on the bottom floor
     of the law school.  Of course you can always brave the elements and
     take a five minute walk to the Silo or the Coffee House.  See Section
     5.1 for more information on food services on the U.C. Davis campus.

4.5.2)  SERVICES AVAILABLE TO LAW STUDENTS THROUGH U.C. DAVIS.

     See the U.C. Davis USENET FAQ for information about services available
     to law students through U.C. Davis (see Section 1.5 for information on
     how to obtain the U.C. Davis USENET FAQ).

     themselves to an additional gift of $125,000 with a challenge to match
