Welcome to April, which in law school means the breathless push to finish the academic year strong. Classes will end this month, and finals will begin, so there is much to do.
In addition to papers to write and outlines to compose, April is the month for student organization elections, moot court and trial team tryouts, and a final flurry of events. Lots and lots of events.
Today, for instance, the following events are on the calendar:
PHI DELTA PHI KINDERMOCK
Wednesday, April 1, 12:00-2:00pm, Darling Trial Courtroom
Kindermock is an annual event put on by Phi Delta Phi where we host elementary students at the law school. The event consists of a tour of the law school and a mock trial of the three little pigs. The visiting students serve as the jury in the trial and must reach a verdict as to whether the big bad wolf is guilty or innocent. This event is a fantastic opportunity to introduce the students to the legal field as well as the Pepperdine community.
CAREERS IN WORKERS COMPENSATION LAW PRESENTATION
Wednesday, April 1, from 12:30-1:30pm in Classroom A
David DePaolo and Alicia Aiden from WorkCompCentral will be on campus to provide an overview of what workers’ compensation law entails and what a career in workers compensation law is like. We encourage you to attend to learn about this growing practice area. Chick Fil A will be provided!
THE PEOPLE V. THE CONSTITUTION
On Wednesday, April 1, in Classroom B from 12:30-1:30pm, Professor Derek Muller will present an informative and entertaining look at an important case that the U.S. Supreme Court is about to decide. To prevent gerrymandering, voters in Arizona passed a ballot initiative handing over the power to draw congressional districts from the state legislature to an independent commission. The Arizona legislature sued, arguing that the power to regulate the times, places, and manner of elections is reserved to the “Legislature” under the United States Constitution. Lunch will be served.
