The Restoration and Justice Clinic provides legal services to victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and other gender-based crimes. Students provide comprehensive litigation services for clients emerging from abusive, violent, and coercive relationships while gaining intensive, client-centered experience in case development, hearing and trial practice. Clinical education opportunities are also a reason that preLaw Magazine, a National Jurist publication, identifies Pepperdine Law as a top university for practical training.
