The 5th Annual Pepperdine School of Law Golf Tournament "Driving FORE Justice," was held on May 10, at the Calabasas Country Club. More than 90 alumni and friends of the school played in the tournament, raising more than $10,000. All proceeds benefited the Global Justice Program, which funds international human rights projects and summer stipends for students’ public interest work around the world.
Sponsored by Panish, Shea, & Boyle LLP, Neptunes Net Seafood, Inc., the Student Bar Association, and Manchester Financial, the competition was a scramble format, where every golfer will play the team’s best ball on every shot. Prizes were awarded for first, second, and third place teams and individual prizes will be given for "longest drive" and "closest to the pin."
Pepperdine Global Justice Program offers unparalleled opportunities for students to serve those in greatest need around the world. Partnering with organizations, such as the International Justice Mission, Restore International, Saddleback Church, and others, Pepperdine has established itself as a preeminent leader in the fight for global justice and the protection of the rule of law.
Pepperdine students and faculty have served in more than 25 countries, working as judicial clerks for international supreme courts, documenting human rights abuses for later prosecution, preparing cases to expedite justice for children, and protecting the rule of law in numerous under-served countries around the world.
