Board of Visitors

The Board of Visitors of Pepperdine University School of Law supports and advances the mission of the university by helping the School of Law achieve the highest standards of academic excellence and maintain its distinctive character. Board of Visitor members are recruited for their accomplishments within and service to their local, national and international communities.

Members of the Board of Visitors (BOV) serve as advisors to the dean and faculty, seek outstanding prospective students to recommend to the school, provide career opportunities for students, introduce leaders in the legal community to Pepperdine, and serve as goodwill ambassadors on a national and global level. BOV members further the School of Law's goals by contributing their personal and professional talents, contacts, and resources to the advancement of the law school. Board members not employed in public service positions are expected to contribute at least $25,000 annually to Pepperdine University School of Law.

The Board of Visitors meets twice a year (once during the fall and spring semesters) and members are expected to attend each meeting.
