The purpose of the Women’s Law Caucus is to bring together the community of Lewis and Clark students interested in exploring the wide spectrum of legal issues affecting women. The Women’s Law Caucus also promotes women in the law by providing support and encouragement to students, enhancing ties with the community, and empowering future female leaders who will work toward the advancement of women’s legal rights.

She currently works full-time for the Multnomah County Department of Human Services as a Procurement and Contract Specialist. In her free time, she likes to sample local micro-brews and spend time with her two rescue dogs, two rescue cats, and incredibly patient and supportive wife.
Ali is a 1L student who made the wise decision to depart from her desert home in Phoenix, AZ for the lush forests of Portland, OR. Ali completed her undergraduate degree at Arizona State University in 2012 and attained a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with a minor in Family and Human Development. In the two years after graduation, Ali worked as a Behavioral Health Technician for adults with Serious Mental Illness (SMI), a Case Worker for Child Protective Services, and a Behavioral Therapist for children with autism. Since Ali’s interests are plentiful and diverse, she hasn’t picked a specific focus for law school yet, but the following topics have piqued her attention: business law, animal law, public policy, and constitutional law. Ultimately, Ali wants a venue to be able to promote her ideals of equality, compassion for vulnerable populations, and creation of a national and global community based upon mutual understanding. Therefore, Ali would like to leave you with this thought for the day: “Today, give a stranger one of your smiles. It may be the only sunshine he sees all day.” P.S. I Love You, by Cecelia Ahern.
