Oregon State Bar/Oregon New Lawyers Division Pro Bono Challenge
On October 28, Lewis & Clark Law School and 3L Michael Liu will receive prestigious awards from the Oregon State Bar/Oregon New Lawyers Division Pro Bono Challenge.
Michael is receiving the award for being the Oregon law student reporting the most pro bono hours during the 2009-2010 school year. Most of Michael’s hours came from work that he did in remote Asian villages between his first and second years through Bridges Across Borders Southeast Asia. This is the second year in a row that a Lewis & Clark law student has won this award.
Our school is receiving the award for reporting the most pro bono hours of any Oregon law school during the 2009-2010 school year. This is the first year that Lewis & Clark has received this award since the award’s creation in 2002. This award recognizes the extraordinary work that Lewis & Clark law students have put into pro bono, more than 10,000 hours in 2009-2010 plus 2,000 more in community service.
The awards will be presented at the Pro Bono Fair and Social to be held at the Oregon Historical Society in downtown Portland. Awards will be presented between 5 and 6 pm on the 28th.
