Living in Malibu is an adventure all by itself. For me, having grown up in rural Arkansas, the periodic celebrity encounter at the grocery store is still difficult to accept as normal. It is even more fun to see a famous face at the law school.
I first knew the name Roger Cossack during the O.J. Simpson trial in the mid-1990s when he became a television legal analyst and CNN talk show host. Eventually, however, as a sports fan, I knew his name well as the one ESPN turned to when sports and law intertwined (e.g., “Next on Sports Center, ESPN legal analyst, Roger Cossack, talks about the steroids scandal.”).
Today, I know him as a popular Pepperdine professor, a captivating storyteller, and a true gentleman with a friendly smile. It is an honor to have Professor Roger Cossack around these halls as one of “us.”
