Pre-Law Advising is run by Susan Meyer, daughter of former UC Davis chancellor James H. Meyer. She serves as the primary advisor and is supported by law student advisors, who are law students at the UC Davis School of Law at King Hall. She has served in this position since 1983, and is now a "senior advisor", acting as an advisor to other advisors. She can often provide valuable information or point you in the right direction.
