Dedication of the James M. McGoldrick, Jr. Office

Earlier this summer, our law community mourned the loss of our beloved professor Jim McGoldrick. In the wake of his passing, members of the Pepperdine Caruso Law family joined together to honor his legacy of almost 50 years of service to the school. As a result, the Jim McGoldrick Memorial Law Scholarship was created and will be used to provide scholarship support to students in need.

Additionally, those who were closest to Professor McGoldrick sought to honor their departed friend by organizing an effort to permanently name his office at the school the James M. McGoldrick, Jr. Office. Amongst the organizers were Professors Harry Caldwell, Colleen Graffy, Anthony Miller, Ed Larson, and Steve Schultz. Together, they raised over $30,000 to support the office naming in just under five hours. "We are deeply moved by the efforts of the Pepperdine Caruso Law community coming together to honor Jim in such a significant way," said Harry Caldwell, professor of law and longtime friend of Professor McGoldrick. "He will be dearly missed and remembered always."

The donors include: Paul Caron, Jim Gash, Otto Cipolla, Harry Caldwell, Steve Schultz, Terry Adamson, Michael Bidart, Carol Chase, Jack Coe, Christine Goodman, Colleen Graffy, Janet Kerr, Richard Lynn, Anthony Miller, Charles Nelson, Patti Paniccia, Tim Perrin, Ron Phillips, Scott Racine, Shelley Saxer, LaGard Smith, Ken Starr, Tom Stipanowich, Peter Wendel, and Maureen Weston.

Funds raised for the naming of Professor McGoldrick's office will be designated to his scholarship.
