Pepperdine Law Professor Michael Helfand Publishes Op-Ed in the LA TImes

Professor Michael A. Helfand published an Op-Ed article in the LA Times  regarding the right of a prisoner to grow a beard for religious reasons.
On Tuesday, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in Holt vs. Hobbs, another big-ticket case that tests the limits of religious liberty when it comes into conflict with government regulation. The petitioner — Gregory Holt — is a prison inmate, housed by the Arkansas Department of Correction. But Holt is also known by another name, Abdul Maalik Muhammad, and he is by all accounts a sincere adherent of Islam. As part of that faith commitment, ...

In Memory
Memorial Day 2014

Pepperdine University School of Law wishes to take the opportunity of Memorial Day to express its deep gratitude to the men and women who have died in service to the United States of America. Their sacrifice has preserved the system of laws and freedoms that Pepperdine law students study and our graduates exercise on a daily basis. Because of this, we work each day with a fresh appreciation for our fallen brothers, sisters, parents, and children.

Mission

The mission of Pepperdine University School of Law is to provide highly qualified students with a superior legal education. The school seeks to prepare students for positions as counselors, advocates, and judges; as business persons; and as researchers, teachers, and philosophers of the law. These ends are furthered by a program of academic excellence combined with practical experience.

The school's Christian emphasis leads to a special concern for imbuing students with the highest principles of professional, ethical, and moral responsibility. An effort is made to call together a faculty, staff, and student body who wish to share this experience of quality legal education in a value-centered context. It is the philosophy of the School of Law that lawyers best serve the interests of their clients, as well as the interests of society, when they possess a genuine commitment to high standards of personal conduct and professional responsibility. Therefore, the school tries to convey to its students not only the knowledge of how to employ the law, but also an awareness of the responsibilities to society that accompany the power inherent in that knowledge.

The faculty and administration of the School of Law are committed to the proposition that the way in which they approach students, both personally and professionally, will shape the student's perception of the law and the role of lawyers. Both faculty and administration must, therefore, adhere to the highest standards of moral and ethical conduct, exhibit a concern for the total education and personal well-being of students, and uphold the ideal of the personal dignity of each individual. One significant manifestation of this faculty and administrative role is the emphasis placed on counseling students. Both faculty and administrators continually reaffirm their commitment to serving the needs of students and to being available to students. The faculty and administration believe that this role model concept is integral to improving the profession and accomplishing the mission of the law school.

Description

Boasting one of the largest legal communities in the world, greater Los Angeles provides students with opportunities for hands-on experience outside the classroom, as well as a large potential job market. Only thirty miles away, downtown Los Angeles is a focal point for the emerging Pacific Rim, and serves as a center for international trade and finance. Many Pepperdine students interested in entertainment law take advantage of Pepperdine's unique proximity to the entertainment world, enjoying internships and full-time positions with the surrounding studios and production companies. As a cultural and entertainment center, Greater Los Angeles provides all of the distractions and diversity of a big city, allowing students to eat dim sum in Chinatown, splash in the waves at Venice Beach, and root for the Lakers at Staples Center, all in the same day. Just minutes away from campus, the surrounding Santa Monica Mountains provide numerous trails for biking and hiking. The famous Malibu beaches offer a variety of recreational activities. Situated near the top of the university's campus, Pepperdine's Odell McConnell Law Center surveys the spectacular beauty of the Southern California coastline.
