Pepperdine Law Professor Gives Talk on Client Counseling and Moral Responsibility

On November 24th Regent Law proudly hosted Pepperdine University School of Law Professor Robert F. Cochran for a noon lecture titled “Client Counseling and Moral Responsibility.”

Professor Cochran’s address explored alternative client counseling models, all differing in the extent to which they advocate legal counsel providing moral guidance and friendship within the client relationship.

Given its emphasis on moral responsibility, Cochran’s lecture was particularly timely for Regent Law students striving to live out their legal callings with excellence and integrity.

“Professor Cochran is a true leader in the world of faith and law integration,” said law school Dean Jeffrey Brauch. “We are honored to have him on campus.”

The event, hosted jointly by Regent’s Alternative Dispute Resolution Board and Regent’s chapter of the Christian Legal Society, was attended by both faculty and students.

Cochran is the Louis D. Brandeis Professor of Law at Pepperdine University School of Law and also serves as Director of the Herb and Elinor Nootbaar Institute on Law, Religion, and Ethics.
