Samuel Green (JD '11) Presents to Student Groups on Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization
On November 10, alumnus Samuel Green (JD '11), who founded the pro-life ministry Reason for Life, gave two presentations at Pepperdine Caruso Law regarding Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, which is being argued before the Supreme Court this week. The first was an event organized by the Students for Life club, where Samuel discussed the possibility that the Court will overturn Roe v. Wade. Green authored an amicus curiae brief in the first Supreme Court case since 1992 to confront that question directly.
Later that day, Green served as the speaker at the Wednesday night Christian Legal Society Bible Study, and talked about the issues in Dobbs through a biblical lens. The evening brought back fond memories for the alumnus. "When I was a law student here, I cherished these Wednesday night Bible studies, and it is a delight to be back," he said. Green also enjoyed the opportunity to interact with current students during the dinner prior to the Bible study and to pray with them about final exams.
While at Pepperdine Caruso Law, Green was a Faculty Scholar and graduated first in his class. In his work as Reason for Life's president and general counsel, he shares the biblical and scientific case for life at churches and Christian schools.
Before founding Reason for Life, Samuel worked at Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), where he engaged in litigation to defend the sanctity of life, freedom of speech, and religious liberty. Samuel has also worked as a litigation associate at Jenner & Block, as a member of a presidential campaign's legal team, and as a law clerk to the Honorable Raymond W. Gruender of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit.
