Comments from a recent LLM class:
“The courses, clinical experience and other multiple events at Lewis & Clark were the perfect combination for me to have a great experience during the course of my LLM Everything I learned at Lewis & Clark prepared me for the challenges I will face during the rest of my career as an environmental lawyer in Colombia.”“I remember how lucky and grateful I felt at the end of each semester knowing that I’d learned this area of law from professors I so admired and in a place with such wonderful staff and students.”“…everything was memorable about Portland and the people I met. Definitely when I met Chief Justice Roberts after the Moot Court competition.”
