Pepperdine Caruso Law Congratulates Lauren Elvick
Pepperdine Caruso Law is glad to congratulate its recent bell-ringer in celebration of post-graduate employment success, Lauren Elvick! Lauren was joined in the joyful festivities by Dean Paul Caron, Dean Shannon Phillips, Professor Robert Anderson, Associate Dean Jason Jarvis, Assistant Dean Laine Kontos and Director Michelle Feinstein of the Career Development Office, members of the Adminstrative Offices and Deans' Suite, and Lauren's classmates and family. Prior to ringing the bell, Lauren thanked Michelle Feinstein, her professsors, and her friends and family.
Following graduation, Lauren will be working as an associate at K&L Gates LLP. She learned about the position through the Career Development Office's Fall On-Campus Interview program, during which she interviewed with K&L Gates and accepted an offer as a summer associate for the Summer of 2021. In that position, Lauren worked mostly within the firm's employment litigation practice, which she greatly enjoyed. At the end of the summer, Lauren accepted a post-graduate offer.
Lauren is from Reno, Nevada. She moved to Los Angeles to attend the University of Southern California, where she became the first person in her family to graduate college. At USC, Lauren studied political science and received a minor degree in Spanish, the latter of which she completed during a study abroad program in Madrid, Spain. Lauren was inspired to attend law school after joining the pre-law fraternity on campus, where she served as vice president. Lauren's legal writing professor, Antonio Elefano, served as a great mentor to her and solidified my interest in the profession.
At Pepperdine Caruso Law, Lauren served as an SBA Student Representative during her 1L year, and as a Caruso Law Student Mentor and Teaching Fellow during her 2L year. She is currently a Note and Comment Editor of the Pepperdine Law Review. In the Fall 2021 semester, Lauren studied abroad in Caruso Law's London Program, where she participated in the International Moot Court.
Lauren would like to thank Michelle Feinstein for her guidance during the fall interviewing process and all of her professors who have each made her experience at Caruso Law truly rewarding and worthwhile. Finally, she would like to thank her parents and family back in Reno and her friends from USC and Pepperdine, who mean everything to her and have supported her unwaveringly.
Congratulations to Lauren!
