About Career Development at Pepperdine Law

Mission Statement

To provide every Pepperdine law student and alumnus with the highest level of comprehensive and individualized career services through proactive placement assistance, career counseling, professional development programs, effective marketing to employers, and productive relationships with the entire School of Law community.


The CDO assists students as they navigate their transition from student to professional. Experienced staff is available for individual appointments to discuss job search strategies, resume-writing and interviewing skills, networking opportunities, and other aspects of career counseling.

In addition, throughout the academic year, the CDO offers workshops and programs designed to illuminate the job search process. The CDO frequently hosts guest speakers, providing students with the opportunity to talk directly with professionals currently working in specific areas of interest. The CDO maintains both student and alumni job postings on its website. Each fall and spring, employers visit Pepperdine to interview interested law students for full-time summer and post-graduate positions. All second and third-year law students are invited to participate in these on-campus interview programs, which respectively begin in August and February.
