Diversity and Belonging

At Pepperdine Caruso Law, our community is rich in political, racial, and spiritual diversity which has formed a strong culture of connection among our students, faculty, and staff. Led by our faith-based values, we believe that each person’s voice and convictions enhance our community.

We are committed to being a place where all belong. While we recognize that there is still much work to be done, we have outlined important measures and goals in our strategic plan for the continued improvement of diversity at Caruso Law. Read our statement of purpose.

November Spotlight: Diwali

For Hindus around the world, and especially in India, Diwali is one of the biggest and most important festivals of the year. A five-day observance, ending on the day of Diwali, the celebration signifies the victory of good over evil, light over darkness, and knowledge over ignorance. This festival of lights is celebrated by 1.2 billion Hindus, and often by people from the Jain, Sikh, and Buddhist faiths.

First Generation Students

Pepperdine Caruso Law is excited to support students who are the first in their family to graduate from college. Through our "First Gen" initiatives, we strive to foster a community that establishes mentors, creates opportunities, and opens dialogue about what it means to be a First Gen law student.

I became the person I am today because of Pepperdine – how to be an attorney who has a sense of empathy and compassion in this world – we all gravitated naturally towards this attitude.
