Pepperdine Caruso Law Congratulates Abby Falk, Caroline Koonce, and Aislinn McManus
Pepperdine Caruso Law is pleased to congratulate Abby Falk, Caroline Koonce, and Aislinn McManus for post-graduate employment success!
Abby Falk will be an associate at Aarons Ward, a trial employment law firm, from 2023-2024. Professor Steve Schultz put Abby in touch with the firm's partner and Caruso Law alumna Shannon Ward. From 2024-2025, Abby will be clerking in the Central District of California for the Honorable Andre Birotte Jr., a Caruso Law alumnus. She acquired the clerkship through applying on OSCAR, but spoke to three prior law clerks, who are all Caruso alumni, as well as Dean Goodno, prior to the interview.
Caroline (Gracie) Koonce will be working at Fish & Richardson, a premier global intellectual property law firm, following graduation. Caroline was a summer associate at the firm and accepted an offer to return as a patent litigation associate in their Washington, D.C. office.
Aislinn McManus will be a transactional associate at Kirkland & Ellis following graduation, where she will work with the Mergers & Acquisitions and Debt Finance groups. Aislinn is returning to Kirkland & Ellis after spending the summer there as a summer associate. She acquired the position by participating in Caruso Law's On-Campus Interview program the summer after her first year, and ultimately accepted an offer at Kirkland after advice from professors and friends within the Pepperdine community!
Congratulations to Abby, Caroline, and Aislinn for their well-deserved positions!
