Pepperdine University Caruso School of Law began as the Orange University College of Law in Santa Ana, California, in 1964. The school was acquired by Pepperdine in 1969. By 1975, the Pepperdine Caruso School of Law had received its full ABA approval and full State Bar Accreditation. In 1978, the school moved to Pepperdine's 830-acre campus, which overlooks the Pacific Ocean in Malibu, California.
In Good Faith, a newly published book on its history, tells the story of how the school grew from its humble origin to become one of the premier law schools in the United States (purchase here).
