Professor Emeritus Robert Cochran Returns to Teach Class on Faith and the Law
In January, retired professor and founder of the Nootbaar Institute for Law, Religion, and Ethics Robert F. Cochran came back to Pepperdine Caruso Law to teach the three-day intensive capstone course titled “The Role of Law Practice in a Person of Faith.” The small group course focused on the responsibilities both office lawyers and trial lawyers encounter in their ordinary practices, and how they might handle tensions between their religious faiths and the law.
Cochran brings his perspective from his own real-life experiences from practicing law as a person of faith. He returned to teach the class because “I love Pepperdine, I love teaching, and I love the students who are drawn to this work.”
Elective capstone classes allow 2L and 3L students to learn practical aspects of the legal profession. Visit the post on Capstone Classes to read more about these course offerings.
