Caruso School of Law to Explore Legal Drama Just Mercy
Pepperdine Caruso School of Law will present a panel session exploring the 2019 cinematic legal drama, Just Mercy, based on a memoir of the same name by celebrated Alabama-based public interest attorney, Bryan Stevenson. Chalak Richards (JD '12), incoming assistant dean for student life, diversity, and belonging at Caruso School of Law, will lead the hour-long online discussion on Thursday, July 16, at noon PDT.
