Students will visit the Pepperdine Law campus twice during the program for immersive residency courses. During each weekend residency, students will put into practice the legal concepts they are learning in class and network with faculty and fellow classmates.
Students will engage with case studies, live role playing, mock mediations, and mock trials to demonstrate how mediators, lawyers, and clients work together to resolve controversies and solve legal problems.
Each residency is considered a one-unit course and will be offered at various times throughout the year:
The Princeton Review has ranked Pepperdine University’s Malibu, California, campus as one of the most beautiful in the country. Students are encouraged to take advantage of their stay and explore the beaches and cities of Southern California.
