Honoring Our Donors

With a proud tradition of academic excellence and steadfast commitment to Christian values, the Pepperdine Caruso School of Law gratefully acknowledges its faithful benefactors who enable the work of our law faculty, staff, and administration, preparing students for fulfilling legal careers and lives of purpose. Since its beginning, the Caruso School of Law has been blessed by a devoted cadre of supporters. From its first patrons - the enterprising trio of Vincent Dalsimer, Ed Di Loreto, and Harry Shafer - through today, the school's remarkable success has been fueled by friends and alumni who wholeheartedly embrace Pepperdine's distinctive mission.

George Pepperdine Society members listed here represent an extraordinary group of leaders and friends who have made generous lifetime commitments to the progress and programs of the law school. Pepperdine Caruso Law Associates are dedicated individuals who give annually to enrich the school's classroom resources and co-curricular opportunities.

The Caruso School of Law is thankful for this distinguished community of supporters who together are creating a meaningful history and ensuring a bright future for legal education at Pepperdine.
