As we head into Major League Baseball’s All-Star weekend I thought I would make a brief mention of the Pepperdine Law All-Star event that happens in August.
Last year, Dean Sturgeon and I got together to figure out just what we could do to help end the 1L orientation on a high note. We thought about lots of ideas but finally settled on hosting our first annual Faculty/Staff vs. 1L softball game. We rented out the softball field across the street at the beautiful Malibu Bluffs Park and brought out sandwiches and refreshments for everyone.
The game itself was a blast with a great mix of faculty and staff playing against over thirty students (playing on two separate teams). This year’s game is coming up on Friday, August 16th and being promoted on our Class of 2016 Facebook page. We’re expecting another great turnout and feel so fortunate to be able to enjoy our incoming students in a fun, community filled atmosphere. If you’re in the neighborhood, please stop by!!!
