Taj Entrance

From business leaders to economic and political analysts to heads of state, people around the globe have come to the same conclusion: India will be the next world power. That makes it the place where progressive, forward thinking institutions like Lewis & Clark Law School need to be—and it’s why our Law School community has put India at the center of exciting new plans within the International Law Program.

Lewis & Clark has established an innovative partnership with top Indian law schools, firms and NGOs, which has created first-of-their-kind legal and cultural exchanges.

The Memoranda of Understanding signed in 2010 with three top Indian Law Schools  established:

  • Student exchanges
  • Joint-international conferences in both India and Portland
  • Professor exchanges and scholarly collaborations

The relationships with partner firms, advocates and NGOs in India provide externship placements, thereby securing opportunities for Lewis & Clark students to have hands-on, for-credit experiences. These externships span a number of topics including business law, environmental law, human rights law, and animal rights law.
