Diversity

Resources for Prospective Students

Academic Enhancement Program

The Academic Enhancement Program (AEP) provides academic, cultural, and social support to Lewis & Clark law students who may have experienced past barriers to education. While all admitted students are invited to participate, space is limited and thus, priority is given to ethnic minorities, international students, non-traditional students, and those with socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds.

Student Organizations

Diversity is essential to the mission of some of our student organizations. These organizations focus on the professional goals and needs of their communities, both on and off campus. To foster networking and to develop professional competence, the groups sponsor speakers, conduct legal workshops, and participate in mentorship programs within the community. They also sponsor social events and coordinate activities with student and professional organizations to promote the value of diversity within the legal profession.

Scholarship Opportunities

Various scholarship opportunities exist for law students, including those specifically for minorities or under-represented groups. Those that we know of are posted on our Scholarships and Awards web page. There you’ll find scholarships provided by outside organizations as well as those specifically for Lewis & Clark law students.

Lewis & Clark Diversity Pipeline Programs

Lewis & Clark Law School’s commitment to diversity extends beyond offering programs & scholarships to law students. The Summer Law Camp and Minority Mock Trial Day are geared toward increasing diversity in the “pipeline” to the legal profession.

Multicultural Resource Guide

The Lewis & Clark Multicultural Resource Guide contains resources valuable to students, staff, and faculty at LC.  This guide is especially useful for traditionally underrepresented members of the LC community. This guide is evolving and is not all-inclusive of the resources to the Greater Portland Area has to offer, but hopes to serve as a starting point to allow you familiarize yourself with what is available to you in Multnomah County and surrounding areas.
