Pepperdine University School of Law welcomed Steve Engel, former deputy assistant attorney general of the United States, on Monday, February 23. Engel spoke during a lunch for students interested in applying for a clerkship.
Engel was also a guest in Dean Starr's Appellate Advocacy Seminar. In addition to his work in private practice for Kirkland & Ellis, Engel was a law clerk to Justice Anthony Kennedy of the United States Supreme Court from 2001 to 2002. He was a law clerk to Judge Alex Kozinski, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit from 2000-2001.
In the last decade, the number of Pepperdine graduates who have become successful federal court clerks has significantly increased, including most recently, a clerkship by one of our students for Justice Samuel A. Alito during the 2008-2009 term.
