About me

Aaron Shechet earned a Bachelor's with Honors in Economics from UC

University School of Law with a Certificate from the Geoffrey H. Palmer
Center for Entrepreneurship and the Law, of which he served as an
Executive Board Member and is currently a Fellow.

While at
Santa Barbara, Mr. Shechet started a café which served over 1100 dorm
residents.  He also served as President of his dorm and volunteered for
a Congressional Campaign.

His paper on NAFTA and Maquiladoras was cited in “Politics Canada” in July, 2004.

earning his law degree, Mr. Shechet worked for a large publicly traded
company in both the Legal and Human Resources Departments. 
While there, he drafted numerous internal forms and established
policies, rules, and processes.  Among other accomplishments, Mr.
Shechet created the company'sEmployee Handbook, Consumer Claims
Process, Revised License Agreements, Assisted in the Creation of their
Records Retention Program, and Restructured their Patent Application
Process -- successfully reducing throughput from four months to thirty


After graduating from Pepperdine, Mr.
Shechet had an Internship with the California Department of
Corporations.  One of his most involved assignments during this time
was an investigation in conjunction with the Chino Police Department,
which led to a Criminal Referral to the California Attorney General in
relation to Securities Fraud.

at Pepperdine, Mr. Shechet served as Vice-President and then President
of the Federalist Society and co-founded the Journal of Business,
Entrepreneurship & the Law -- only the fourth scholarly journal in
