I want to personally thank you for the outpouring of support Pepperdine Law School received in the aftermath of the Woolsey Fire. We all have been touched by the concern and graciousness of our legal education friends and colleagues.
Many of you may have seen the breathtaking photos of the burned areas surrounding the Pepperdine campus. Thankfully, Pepperdine was spared due to the wisdom and planning of the University and Los Angeles County Fire leadership, along with the courage and dedication of the heroic firefighters on the ground and in the air.
I am proud of how the Pepperdine family came together to support each other and to be of service to the community around us. We sheltered and fed those displaced by the fire, and we launched a disaster relief clinic to help them rebuild their homes and lives.
We feel blessed to be back on our beautiful campus and gearing up for the upcoming spring semester.
I know you have many commitments while you are at the AALS Annual Meeting, but I hope you will find the time to stop by our reception so I can thank you in person.
Please join me and other Pepperdine Law faculty for hors d’oeuvres and a hosted bar.
