Winding Down at Pepperdine . . .

As our time at Pepperdine draws to a close, my wife and I hosted my Federal Estate & Gift Tax class for an end-of-the-semester dinner last night at the spectacular beach house we are living in. It was a wonderful night, filled with great food and conversation.

Class Dinner

Our next door neighbor this week is one of my heroes, Gary Haugen, President of International Justice Mission, who is teaching a short course at Pepperdine on Human Rights and the Rule of Law in the Developing World. Gary has spoken at our Cincinnati church, which is partnering with IJM to provide aftercare for girls rescued from forced prostitution in India.

If I was graduating from law school today, I would try to get a job with IJM (and I have told many young lawyers that). Though I suspect it is not easy.

Nice getaway.

You picked a good hero. Trafficking children for sex is just beyond disgusting and horrifying. It's terrific for people to step forward to help provide a new life for the victims.
