Celebrating the First Class of Student Associates

February 28, 2019  | 2 min read

On January 31, Dean Gash opened his home to 1L students who were the first class to join the new Student Associates Program. To help celebrate this new class, members of the Board of Advisors and the Dean's Council were invited to attend along with the School of Law's most loyal friends and donors.

More than seventy students guests gathered at twilight for this giving celebration. Board of Advisors member Terry Adamson was among the evening's guests and commented,  "I think it was a big success and so wise to get students involved with giving early on."

After the reception, first-year Student Associate Jessica Linton said, "The reception was a great event! It was so inspiring to hear the alumni talk about their reasons for giving back, and to feel that we were the first class enacting this program to build connections not just with alumni, but with our roots as Pepperdine students. I definitely look forward to more events like this in the future - the networking was invaluable, and the time with friends outside of the classroom was amazing!"

As the future of this school, Pepperdine Law Associates help equip preeminent legal professionals to lead with character and conviction. We invite you to become a part of this esteemed annual donor community. If you are interested in joining the Student Associate Program, please contact Ben Gifford (Benjamin.gifford@pepperdine.edu).

When George Pepperdine founded the University in 1937, he envisioned thousands of alumni having an impact on the world, leading through work based in faith and values. Pepperdine Law Associates and Student Associates help fulfill that dream.
