The Martha West Social Justice Scholarship at UC Davis School of Law supports students interested in social justice, helping to defer the increasing costs of legal education in an effort to encourage careers in public service. The scholarship was established by Professor Emeritus Martha West when she retired in 2007 after 25 years of teaching courses including Employment Discrimination, Labor Law, and Sex-based Discrimination at King Hall.
Professor West has been concerned by steeply rising fees at the Law School and throughout the University of California, and worried that high costs may discourage students interested in social justice from seeking a UC Davis legal education. The Martha West Social Justice Scholarship provides financial aid for such students and supports the King Hall tradition of commitment to public service.
