Pepperdine Caruso Law Congratulates Clayton Collier

Pepperdine Caruso Law is proud to congratulate its newest bell-ringer in honor of post-graduate employment success, Clayton Collier! Clayton was joined in the joyful celebration by Dean Paul Caron, Dean Shannon Phillips, Associate Dean Chalak Richards, Alumni Director Jessie Fahy, members of the Deans' Suite and Admissions Office, and Clayton's family. Prior to ringing the bell, Clayton thanked his wife, his parents, his daughters Noelle and Norah, and the Caruso Law deans and professors.

Clayton recently graduated as valedictorian of the class of 2022. He completed his JD in December, and passed the California Bar Exam in February. In September, Clayton will begin working for Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP.  He was a summer associate at Gibson in 2021. Clayton interviewed for the position through the Fall 2020 on campus interview program, and received and accepted a job offer at the end of the 2021 summer. 

Prior to attending law school, Clayton graduated from UC Santa Barbara in 2010 with a Bachelor of Arts in history and philosophy. He graduated from Fuller Seminary with a Master of Divinity in 2018.

Clayton would like to thank his wife and two daughters, Noelle and Norah. He would also like to thank the rest of his family. He could not have done it without their support. Clayton also sends a big thank you to the classmates with whom he got to struggle alongside, as well as the professors who engaged with him and his colleagues in class who inspired him to think critically about the law, be curious, and ask good questions. 

Congratulations to Clayton!
