Larry K. Amburgey Commitment to Public Interest Law Award:
Lewis & Clark Law School will honor Multnomah County Circuit Court Judge Cheryl A. Albrecht with the Larry K. Amburgey Commitment to Public Interest Law Award at the Auction. Judge Albrecht is a 1993 graduate of Lewis & Clark Law School. As a law student, Judge Albrecht was among the earliest students involved with PILP raising funds so law students could afford to take unpaid summer positions with public interest employers. As a graduate, Judge Albrecht has remained involved in the law school’s work including serving as a member of PILP’s advisory board. The Larry K. Amburgey Commitment to Public Interest Law Award was established in 2011 to recognize Lewis & Clark Law School graduates who demonstrate long-term and loyal commitment to the public interest law program at the Law School.
PILP’s largest fundraiser is its annual auction, supporting the Summer Stipend Program and Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP). The PILP Auction is a gala event that brings together the Portland legal community, Lewis & Clark students and faculty, and public interest law supporters. We invite you to join us, to celebrate all the great work PILP stipend recipients and volunteers have done throughout the year—and, most importantly, to raise money to bridge the justice gap between those who can afford legal help and those who need it.
