Pepperdine continues its annual tradition of welcoming the families of law students to campus for a slice of law school life on Friday, Sept. 28 from 8:30 to 1:30 p.m.
Families have the chance to attend a first-year law class with their student, according to the student's section. Section A will attend Professor Rob Anderson's course Contracts, Section B will attend Professor Tony Miller's course Torts, and Section C will attend Dean Tim Perrin's course Civil Pleading and Procedure.
Following the classes, guests will gather for a faculty panel discussion about life as a law student. Dean Jim Gash will talk about a day in the life of the law student, Dean Carol Chase will talk about the academic challenge over the three years of law school, and Professor Tony Miller will talk about the law school's study abroad programs.
Guests will be able to see students' law knowledge in action when viewing the final round of the Armand Arabian Advocacy Tournament later that morning. As one of Pepperdine's longtime traditions, the tournament draws between thirty to fifty students each year and puts their oral argument skills to the test. After the final round and critique, the winner will receive a $1,000 stipend provided by alumnus Terry Giles ('74).
The day's events will conclude with a luncheon and a guided building tour. To register for Family Day, contact Margaret Barfield at (310) 506-4653 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org by Sept. 24.
