- LRLSA Members, Olivera '11 & Acevedo '13, selected to UC Davis National Mock Trial Team
La Raza members, Jose Olivera '11 and Christian Acevedo '13, are 2 of only six students selected to the UC Davis National Mock Trial Team. Congratulations and good luck to Jose and Chrisitian, we look forward to posting your success on this page in 2011.
This event is held annually to honor one of UC Davis School of Law's distinguished Latino graduates, the Lorenzo Patiño Awards Banquet is always one of the most anticipated events of the year at the Law School.
The event honors the late Lorenzo Patiño '73, whose career exemplified the commitment to diversity and public service that defines King Hall. Patiño was a highly respected leader in Sacramento's Latino community who dedicated countless hours of service to helping the less fortunate. Patiño was one of the first Mexican-Americans appointed to the Municipal Court of Sacramento and a co-founder of the University of Northern California School of Law, an institution dedicated to providing a low-cost legal education for working people. Though his time as an attorney, jurist, and community activist was cut tragically short, he had an enormous impact, enough to prompt La Raza member Miguel Martin '84 to found the Patiño Banquet in his honor.
In addition to paying tribute to the legacy of Lorenzo Patiño, the banquet also honors La Raza's graduating students. The Patiño Award will be presented to one student who exemplifies extraordinary service and dedication, not only to the Latino community, but the legal community at large.

Hosted by LRLSA. Every year La Raza celebrates the contributions of Latino community leader Cesar Chavez with a series of noon-hour discussions and guest lectures on the Law School Campus.
