Program Update from the Clinical Legal Education Program at Pepperdine Caruso School of Law

In this season of updates, I'm proud to share our program report for the Pepperdine Caruso School of Law clinics, externships, practicum courses, and grant-funded stipend programs for public interest placements.  
Please read it here.
The report includes updates about our new director of externships and pro bono (Prof. Tori Votino), the relaunched Public Interest Law Practicum and redesigned Therapeutic Justice Practicum, the new Religious Liberty Clinic (with Profs. Eric Rassbach and Michael Helfand), and updates on our eight other clinics and the externship program. 
Here's an excerpt from my report: 
In our programs, everything is pedagogy; every client, matter, task, and conversation is an opportunity to teach and learn. Our students and faculty serve clients from Skid Row to the Ninth Circuit, from state courts to the IRS, from the US to four other continents, through litigation, mediation, transactions and every step of client-centered advice, counsel, and advocacy. I invite you to read stories from the Legal Aid Clinic, Mediation Clinic, Ninth Circuit Appellate Advocacy Clinic, Community Justice Clinic, Restoration and Justice Clinic, Low Income Taxpayer Clinic, Faith and Family Mediation Clinic, Startup Law Clinic, and the Religious Liberty Clinic. You can also learn more about the Public Interest Law Practicum, the Therapeutic Justice Clinic, and our expansive Externship Program.

Each of our clinics offers a unique scope and style of practice, affording students incomparable experience to develop as professionals and serve clients and communities in great need. Through our clinics, practicums, and expansive externship program, we ensure students thrive in practice during law school and advance access to justice locally, nationally, and globally.
