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.
