August 3, 2016 — Over 60 alumni were in attendance at Pepperdine Law’s annual Wine Law Summer Celebration & MCLE (mandatory continuing legal education) event this past Saturday, hosted at the beautiful home of Gilbert Purcell (JD ’83) in Sausalito, CA. Speakers included President Andrew K. Benton, Dean Deanell Tacha, and wine law expert Brian Simas (JD ’09). Activities included tastings and lessons on vino culture.
“It is so important to Pepperdine Law that we serve the interests and needs of our graduates far beyond graduation,” said Dean Tacha. “One of the most important services we can provide is continuing legal education opportunities that enrich their practice, build expertise, and meet bar requirements. Taught by highly qualified alumni and faculty, Pepperdine MCLE events are a bonus–fellowship with other alumni and high quality educational opportunities.”
