Dean Paul Caron Hosts 11th Annual 3L Commissioning Service
Dean Paul and Courtney Caron hosted the 11th annual 3L Commissioning Service at Pepperdine Caruso Law on April 20. Traditionally held on the last Wednesday night of the weekly Dean's Bible study, this year's service was held at the new Light House on the Pepperdine University main campus. The service opened with a time of worship, which was followed by an elegant dinner.
During the service, Dean Caron presented two gifts to each graduating student on behalf of the law school: a Pepperdine Caruso Law t-shirt that incorporates the lesson of Matthew 14:22-33; and a paperweight to remind the graduates of their time at Pepperdine Caruso Law with the most powerful word that Jesus talked about and modeled — forgiveness. The graduating students were then celebrated with words of life spoken by a professor, staff member, or student selected by each student. The evening concluded with a commissioning prayer for the graduates by Courtney Caron.
