Pepperdine Law Celebrates Public Interest Week 2015

November 6, 2015 -- For the last week, Pepperdine Law students, faculty, and staff have collaborated on a week-long series of events celebrating community successes and new opportunities in the area of  public interest law.

Among the week's events (view the Flickr album):

  • Nootbaar-Glazer Panel on International Public Interest Work: The Nootbaar Institute and Glazer Institute for Jewish Studies presented a panel on international social justice. Members of the Pepperdine Law community talked about their experiences in the Global Justice program, International Justice Mission, and Glazer's Israel Internship program.  Lunch provided.  Check out the event on Facebook for more information.

  • "Public Interest Opportunities" with Professor Baker

  • "Doing Good: Starting Your Public Interest Career"

  • APIL Presents: Live Auction to Benefit Public Interest Scholarships! The Pepperdine Associates for Public Interest Law hosted its annual auction featuring both silent and live events.
