Yesterday I announced three new Student organizations that will be active here at the School of Law effective immediately. The organizations are the result of passionate students who felt a strong need for something that currently did not exist here at Pepperdine Law. I’m excited about these new groups, their leadership teams and all they will do to further enhance the co-curricular experience here at Pepperdine Law.
- Networking Society (DRPC) – The group is created to establish referral and support relationships in and amongst the group toward the goal of securing post-graduate jobs in various legal fields. The group will be run in conjunction with the schools CDO. Assistant Dean Selina Brandt will serve as advisor and include mock interviews, resume and cover letter workshops and of course, networking functions.
- LSCY (Law Students as Catalyst for Youth) – LSCY will mentor teenage youth in high school and juvenile detention centers as they prepare to enter adulthood and become productive member of our society. LSCY will, by providing guidance, knowledge, and demystifying higher education, advance Pepperdine’s mission by striving to ensure mentees are strengthened for lives of purpose, service, and leadership. LSCY will be an outreach made up of Pepperdine University School of Law students, faculty, and alumni. The faculty advisor will be Stephanie Bell.
- Video Game Law Society – This group will exist to provide student interaction with professionals working in the video game industry (including publishers, developers, trademark & patent attorneys and journalists.) and their respective companies and firms. The group hopes to aid members in their preparation for a career in the video game sector of law and business. The faculty advisor will be Ed Larson.
