Promotion of Brittany Stringfellow Otey to full Clinical Professor of Law

We’re grateful and excited to announce that Brittany Stringfellow Otey has received her promotion to full Clinical Professor Law. She has directed the Pepperdine Caruso Legal Aid Clinic at the Union Rescue Mission on Skid Row in Downtown Los Angeles for eighteen years, essentially the entire history of our clinical program. Like most law schools, ours has been in a long evolution and growth in its recognition of clinicians’ roles, places, and value. Brittany began as a law student volunteer in the earliest version of our first volunteer clinics, and she has built, led, persevered, dreamed, worked, and thrived through nearly every iteration of clinical rank and status, from pro bono volunteer to full clinical professor.
She is a brilliant teacher and lawyer, and she has made truly important contributions to scholarship, learning, and manifesting resilience, wellness, and sustainable strength in the service of justice. She remains a wise, vibrant, empathetic, and effective lawyer after nearly two decades in one of the most demanding practices in the nation, and she imparts that spirit to our students, clients, colleagues, and communities.
We are grateful for her as a colleague, and I am grateful for my friend and law partner. This promotion and honor are fitting at long last.
Congratulations, Professor Otey!
