March 5, 2019 | Pepperdine Law third-year student Olivia Scott has been selected by the American College of Bankruptcy as its Distinguished Law Student for the Ninth Circuit. The Distinguished Law Student Program was established in order to identify and promote prospective leaders in the insolvency and bankruptcy profession.
From the American College of Bankruptcy:
To qualify for this prestigious award, law students must be nominated by either a College member or a professor or dean of their law school. The students undergo a rigorous evaluation process that includes interviews, submission of written materials and a review of the candidate’s academic standing and professional accomplishments. The nominated students are considered by the Circuit council of their Circuit, which selects the Distinguished Law Student. Only one student is selected from each Circuit. The honorees are awarded an all-expenses paid trip to the College’s annual Induction Ceremony and Events on March 14-16, 2019, in Coronado, CA where they have an opportunity to meet and get to know the most distinguished bankruptcy practitioners and judges in the country. Many of the Distinguished Law Students honored by the College have gone on to make their own important contributions to bankruptcy law and practice.
The 2019 Induction ceremony will take place at the historic Hotel del Coronado, and will be presided
over by Marc A. Levinson, Chair of the College.
