Today, our student body has the wonderful opportunity to attend a lecture delivered by Geoffrey Palmer. Mr. Palmer endowed one of our great institutes — the Geoffrey H. Palmer Center for Entrepreneurship and the Law — and today is the first time since the endowment that he has addressed our student body.
The Palmers have lived a fascinating life. I encourage you to read this brief article on the Palmer family from 2006.
Here is an overview of the Palmer Center:
In today’s high-tech business world, lawyers who have business skills have an advantage over their peers. The Palmer Center for Entrepreneurship and the Law at Pepperdine, endowed by 1975 law alumnus, Geoffrey H. Palmer, is designed to prepare students for the heightened demands and unique opportunities that technology presents in such areas as business, entertainment law, securities regulation, and intellectual property rights. With a diverse curriculum, the center offers a multidisciplinary certificate program that integrates the study of law, business, and technology, preparing each student (fellow) to be a hybrid of lawyer, business consultant, and financial strategist.
