As Director Oliver mentioned in his post on Friday, this week is Academic Advising Week. Our first-year students are required to take a prescribed set of courses and have little in the way of options. That changes dramatically in the upper-division years, and since Pepperdine Law has such an amazing array of offerings, the options can be quite overwhelming. We launched Academic Advising Week a year ago to help alleviate any confusion and allow our students to take advantage of the rich opportunities available to them.
Today, Dean Saxer and I will provide an important overview (and The Orange Book).
On Tuesday, students will have the chance to interact with the following programs and journals:
- Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution
- Geoffrey H. Palmer Center for Entrepreneurship and the Law
- Herbert and Elinor Nootbaar Institute on Law, Religion and Ethics
- Global Justice Program
- Advocacy Programs
- Entertainment, Media, & Sports Dispute Resolution
- International Opportunities
- Diane and Guilford Glazer Institute for Jewish Studies
- Pepperdine Law Review
- Pepperdine Dispute Resolution Law Journal
- Journal of the National Association of Administrative Law Judiciary
- Journal of Business, Entrepreneurship and the Law
On Wednesday, students will have the chance to interact with the following clinical and externship opportunities:
Legal Aid Clinic
- Ninth Circuit Appellate Advocacy Clinic
- Special Education Advocacy Clinic
- Community Justice Clinic
- Investor Advocacy Clinic
- Criminal, Entertainment, Government, Judicial, and Public Interest Externships
- Washington, DC, Externship
- Criminal Justice Dispute Resolution Practicum
On Thursday, students can meet with our upper-division faculty, and on Friday, they can meet with twenty-three (!) practicing attorneys from a wide range of career practice areas!
What a week!
