Professor Scarberry decided during his first year
at UCLA Law School that he wanted to teach law.
He graduated first in his class and then joined the
Pepperdine law faculty in 1982 after four years' practice
experience with Jones, Day, Reavis & Pogue, Los
Angeles. His major academic interests are bankruptcy
(particularly Chapter 11 business reorganization), remedies, legal philosophy,
election law, and constitutional law (particularly freedom of religion). Except
when it is time to grade exams, he is amazed that law teachers actually are paid
to teach (rather than having to pay for the privilege).
