I am trying to convince my college (Pepperdine University) to allow me to use a little used field to practice, but I want to develop a good argument for its safety and legitimacy. To do that, I was hoping to find the law or county ordinance (or something like that) regarding the approval for archery. Or, does an archery range have to have special permission for the use of the land? If anyone can help, I'd appreciate it.

The National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) is a joint venture between state departments of Education and Wildlife.
I realize this isn't college level but grades 4-12.

I can't help you with the laws but rather than reinvent the wheel why not get into contact with another school in Calif that has a full fledged archery program?

Stanford comes to mind and here is their web page

or the club at CSU Long Beach

There is a United States Intercollegiate Archery Championships$File/Archery+Bios.pdf?Open#search=%22USAT%20archery%20Intercollegiate%20Athletics%20%22

Look to the USA Archery web site
Then click on the college area and U.S. Collegiate Archery Website
And you find this list of Calif programs
California – Biola University, UCLA, Stanford, Cal State Domingos Hills, Claremont-McKenna, Cuesta College, University Southern California (USC), Cal State Long Beach, Saddleback Community College, UC Berkeley, Cal State Fullerton

you might find assistance with the Golden State Bowhunters

Last years intercollegiate archery
look for the names and schools in calif
Long Beach

There is a United States Archery Team

There is also the Texas A&M folks

Or the huge resource Texas State Archery Association

Hope this helps.

Risk Assesment

I think what you are basically looking for is a Risk Assessment document. I put one together for ASU last year. You can find a copy at the collegiate website.

on the contacts/info webpage.

There is also a copy somewhere on the Sun Devil Archery website. I think the TSAA has it posted as well.

As for the laws... the easiest way to find them is to call your local police department. They can point you in the right direction and then you can download the exact language from the web. Note that the school may also have specific "weapons" ordinances for campus. Call the school's general cousel for this info.

No need to reinvent the wheel... all the info you'll need to get a program started is already available... from docs like this to Club constitutions... to accounting tracking, etc. All you have to do is ask.
