New course: Employment Law Practicum (Fall 2016)

Pepperdine School of Law is launching the Employment Law Practicum for Fall 2016. In collaboration with Neighborhood Legal Services of Los Angeles County, this course provides intense experience for students under supervision of expert practitioners in employment law and workers' rights.  Students' work includes the provision of information, referrals and self-help guidance for litigants regarding wage and hour rules, claims with administrative agencies, unemployment insurance, labor commission processes, hearing and appeals. This work may expand to include direct, full representation of clients in administrative hearings and appeals. NLSLA attorneys will direct and supervise students in their work, and Pepperdine law faculty will provide advising and guidance for students' professional formation.

The Employment Law Practicum is the newest practicum course at Pepperdine. It builds on the School of Law's collaboration with Neighborhood Legal Services and the Veterans Law Practicum (Los Angeles). Alongside the Veterans Law Practicum (Ventura), these courses provide opportunities for students to practice in diverse areas of law with the guidance of experienced attorneys.  These courses create new opportunities for students to earn experiential learning units and to fulfill their pro bono requirement.
