Pepperdine Caruso Law Congratulates Iasia Beh
Pepperdine Caruso Law is happy to congratulate its newest bell-ringer in recognition of post-graduate employment success, Iasia Beh! Joining Iasia for the joyful celebration, which was also Iasia's 25th birthday, were Dean Paul Caron, Associate Dean Chalak Richards, members of the Deans' Suite and Administrative Offices, and Iasia's close classmates and partner, Isaac Collins. Prior to ringing the bell, Iasia thanked Dean Richards, all of her professors and the administration at Caruso Law, all of her friends at Caruso Law, her partner Isaac, all of her family and friends at home, the University of Utah for her undergraduate degree, and the Caruso Law Financial Aid Office for facilitating her law degree. Iasia then rang the bell twice, once for her new position, and once for her birthday!
Following graduation, Iasia will begin a position as a Post-Bar Law Clerk at the Los Angeles Dependency Lawyers.
Iasia came to Caruso Law from Utah after graduating from the University of Utah in 2019 with a BS degree in communication. She believed that she was going to be a doctor, but after reading Michelle Obama's autobiography in November 2018, she knew that law school was the place she needed to be.
Iasia would like to thank the people who made her law school career possible, especially her partner Isaac Collins, who moved to Los Angeles with her. She wants to thank everyone back home and in the Pepperdine community that were not able to make it. She wants to thank the Black Law Student Association and the Moot Court Board for electing her as president and chair. Those extracurriculars are what helped her develop her leadership and advocacy skills. She wants to thank Tiffany Smith, Emily Berger, and Dennis Smeal for taking a chance on her. She wants to give special recognition to the Center for Ethnic Student Affairs and the Black Student Union at the University of Utah. Without those organizations, she would not have been able to attend university. She hopes to one day pay them back. Iasia also wants to give a special thanks to her family. Her father Issachar, mother Champayne, step-father Joe, and her siblings: Issachar Jr., Isis, Ileah, Iyana, Isaiah, Josie, Hunter (Day-Day), and Jacobi. She also wants to thank her grandfather Gordan and her many aunts, uncles, cousins, and other family members.
Congratulation to Iasia!
