Paul Casey, a longtime supporter of Lewis & Clark Law School, has made it possible for dozens of students to attend law school.

This past May, Dean Jennifer Johnson joined President Wim Wiewel in conferring an honorary degree on Casey, recognizing him for providing multiple student scholarships, as well as for his support for the Henry J. Casey Professorship, which is named in honor of his father.

The Casey Scholarships have touched the lives of many Lewis  &  Clark law students, including these alumni:

Where Are They Now?

  • Faculty, Staff, and Friends: Where Are They Now?
    Remember that professor or staff member who was so helpful to you in a moment of need? Or perhaps, someone who pushed you farther than you thought possible? We’ve used the fabulous caricatures by Professor Emeritus Ron Lansing to help your search.
  • The Winding Vines of Post-Grad Life
    While a majority of Lewis & Clark Law School graduates become practicing attorneys, some notable alumni have used the rigorous skills they gained in law school to branch off in other directions. These six alumni remind us that the Lewis & Clark community includes people of many different callings.
  • Public Interest Law Project at 30
    January 2020 marks the 30th anniversary of Lewis  &  Clark Law School’s Public Interest Law Project (PILP), a student-run organization that rewards and promotes the service of developing public interest attorneys.
