Join Our Community
Beyond academic excellence and a beautiful campus, what most people recognize about us is our community. Our spiritual foundation, highly accessible faculty, and over 30 student-led organizations give students the opportunity to explore varied interests and supplement their classroom experience while in law school and contribute to the unique experience that is Pepperdine Law.
Mentoring and Professional Relationships
At the law school, we help you clarify your goals and stay focused on your learning with the help of supportive relationships.
Our Parris Institute for Professional Formation is exclusively dedicated to guiding our first-years in this manner, but that's only the first of many mentoring opportunities in your academic career.
Alumni and Careers
Our Office of Alumni Relations helps our graduates stay connected with one another and with opportunities to expand their careers and skills.
The Pepperdine Law Career Development Office (CDO) provides specialized support and resources to assist current students and alumni with their professional development goals and job search efforts.
Beyond the Classroom
Pepperdine School of Law fields outstanding teams each year to compete against law schools from across the nation in Interschool Trial and Appellate Advocacy Competitions.
Student organizations are primarily student run, and events are as varied as social gatherings, guest speakers, fundraising drives, and service opportunities.
Pepperdine Law has four faculty-mentored, student-run scholarly publications.
We find that our founding Christian principles are easily incorporated into all aspects of daily and academic life. This is accomplished in a subtle-but-supportive way so that faith, service, and ethical practice are all opportunities for betterment.
Pepperdine University's Division 1 athletic program provides an opportunity for students to gather, connect, and contribute to a university-wide community.
Pepperdine's on-campus intramural offerings include football, basketball, volleyball, and more. These activities help students balance work, health, and the art of team spirit in our inspiring Malibu setting.
Center for Fine Arts
Our Malibu campus houses the Lisa Smith Wengler Center for the Arts, comprising three theaters and the Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art, where students expand their point of view in culturally enriching and sometimes unexpected ways.
