Ken Starr, the Duane and Kelly Roberts Dean, will leave Malibu, California, for London, England, to teach Federal State Powers at Pepperdine's Summer London Program from June 30 to August 7.
Law students who have been accepted into the six-week summer study program will have the opportunity to take Dean Starr's course and also Ethical Lawyering taught by Associate Dean for Student Life, Jim Gash. Two additional courses: International Entertainment and Copyright Law, and International Public Law, will round out the summer curriculum.
Summer classes will be held at the world-renowned Imperial College, as the Pepperdine London House is undergoing renovations. Classes will return to the London House upon completion of the renovation project in the fall of 2008.
The law school's London Program, which offers a full fall semester program in addition to the summer program, has been approved by the American Bar Association since its inception in 1981. Deans Starr and Gash join a long list of notable guest professors, including Antonin Scalia, associate justice of the United States Supreme Court, who taught Constitutional Law: Federalist Understanding last summer.
