Academic Advising Week Begins Today!

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!
