Join Our Community
Beyond academic excellence and a beautiful campus, what most people recognize about us is our community. Our spiritual foundation, highly accessible faculty, and over 30 student-led organizations contribute to the unique experience that is Pepperdine School of Law.
Our Malibu campus enhances academic study with beautiful surroundings and daily access to your peers and mentors. Our proximity to Los Angeles means access to an international hub for careers and culture.
At the School of Law, we help you clarify your goals and stay focused on your learning. Our Parris Institute for Professional Formation is exclusively dedicated to guiding our first-years in this manner, but that's only the first of many mentoring opportunities in your academic career.
We find that our founding Christian principles are easily incorporated into all aspects of daily and academic life. This is accomplished in a subtle-but-supportive way so that faith, service, and ethical practice are all opportunities for betterment.
The CDO provides specialized support and resources to assist current students and alumni with their professional development goals and job search efforts.
Numerous student organizations and co-curricular activities give students the opportunity to explore varied interests and supplement their classroom experience while in law school. The organizations are primarily student run, and events are as varied as social gatherings, guest speakers, fundraising drives, and service opportunities.
Pepperdine University's Division 1 athletic program provides an opportunity for students to gather, connect, and contribute to a university-wide community.
Pepperdine's on-campus intramural offerings include football, basketball, volleyball, and more. These activities help students balance work, health, and the art of team spirit in our inspiring Malibu setting.
Center for Fine Arts
Our Malibu campus houses the Lisa Smith Wengler Center for the Arts, comprising three theaters and the Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art, where students expand their point of view in culturally enriching and sometimes unexpected ways.
