Pepperdine University School of Law—Pic of the Week

Share this post:

The remnants of snow from the colossal Washington, DC snow storm did not hinder Malibu law students from Pepperdine University School of Law from visiting the Law Library on Thursday, January 28. The law students, who are participants in the law school’s Washington, DC, Externship Semester program, visited the Law Library to receive research training and tours of the Law Library stacks and the historic Thomas Jefferson Building. This pic of the week shows the law students with Nathan Dorn, rare book curator, who provided the students with a rare book display. The display included manuscript books from the 14th and 15th centuries, a copy of the first volume of the Chicago Legal News, which Susan B. Anthony donated to the Library of Congress, George Washington’s personal copy of the Constitution, and other gems from the Law Library rare book collection.

We were delighted to share our collection and expertise on conducting legislative research with students from Pepperdine University School of Law and thank the students for braving the snow!
