Patti Paniccia Law Scholarship for Parenting Students 2023-24 | Applications Open
The 2023-2024 Patti Paniccia Law Scholarship for parenting students now open This scholarship was funded by 1981 alumna, Patti Paniccia, who, in 1996, successfully settled a gender discrimination lawsuit against Turner Broadcasting/Cable News Network (CNN). Following the birth of her second child in 1993, CNN terminated Patti Paniccia’s employment as a reporter in the Los Angeles bureau. It is her hope that the notion of parental responsibility will eventually be integrated into the workplace, and recognized as a valuable and necessary devotion of time and energy for both men and women. In 1994, Patti Paniccia instituted and began teaching Gender and Law classes at Pepperdine School of Law.
