Today was a really cool day with lots happening at the law school. Amongst several events, I had the privilege of welcoming 40 high school students from Palmdale, CA.
The group was part of the Highland High School Government Academy program which exposes students to various components of State and Federal Government. Today, the students got a chance to meet future government policy makers and future lawyers!
The day included an amazing mock trial experience where the students got to hear opening and closing remarks from our #1 trial team as they prepare for a national competition. The students were really impressed with the oral advocacy skills of our teams and also came away encouraged that one day it could be them up arguing before the courts.
After a campus tour and lunch the students also heard from Professor Chris Goodman and 2L’s Anthony Ellis and Ben Moreno. The three of them discussed “DeMystifying Law School” and the process leading up to it. After a few minutes of Q&A, we sent them on their way with some awesome Pepperdine swag and information about the school.
Fun day here at Pepperdine Law!!!
