School of Law Class of 2015 Secures Prestigious Judicial Clerkships
Pepperdine Magazine is the feature magazine for Pepperdine University and its growing community of alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends.
Twelve members of the School of Law Class of 2015 acquired prominent judicial clerkships.
The placements are in courts ranging from California to New York and Washington, D.C.,
and include Ninth and 10th Circuit Courts, the Court of Federal Claims, federal district
courts in Texas, California, and New York, and the Supreme Court of Tennessee.
Judicial clerkships are among the most prestigious positions for law school graduates. A clerkship offers the clerk valuable experience, as well as important support to the work of a judge.
“These Pepperdine law clerks will make valuable contributions to the work of the judges who have selected them,” says School of Law dean Deanell R. Tacha, former chief judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit. “I am confident that Pepperdine has instilled in these students the spirit of public service that is essential to every law clerk entrusted with the great responsibility of assisting some of our nation’s finest public servants—the judicial officers of the nation.”
