Pepperdine University's Nootbaar Fellow John Napier (JD '09) was featured in the Daily Journal's New Lawyer publication on November 24. The article, "Pepperdine Grad Takes Mediation to the World," tells the story of John Napier, who embarked on a yearlong fellowship in Kampala, Uganda, upon graduating from the School of Law in May.
The Nootbaar Fellowship program, sponsored by Pepperdine's Herbert and Elinor Nootbaar Institute on Law, Religion, and Ethics, aims to provide short-term employment for recent graduates. Enacted in the spring, the fellowship program is available to recent graduates who are interested in doing international human rights work for three to 12 months.
Nootbaar Fellows receive a stipend to work at faith-based organizations or in government positions in countries such as Uganda, Rwanda, India, and on the Thai-Burma border, among other locations.
