Pepperdine University School of Law was ranked number one for professor accessibility by the Princeton Review for the second year in a row.
The Princeton Review provides an annual survey of the top 174 law schools in the nation. Pepperdine School of Law made the top spot for professor accessibility in the 2008 and 2009 editions.
In the Review's survey, students cited Dean Ken Starr specifically. "He routinely hosts events at his house for students and will start up a conversation with a student like he is an old friend," explained one student.
Another student says, "He takes so much time making people feel comfortable... The same is true for each and every professor I have had here."
Vice Dean Tim Perrin credits School of Law faculty for the recognition. "It is particularly satisfying because the ranking is based on surveys of Pepperdine law students," he says. "This achievement is a tribute to the law school's remarkably talented faculty who welcome students into their lives, serving as mentors, counselors, role models, and friends."
