Lewis & Clark Diversity Pipeline Programs
Lewis & Clark Law School’s commitment to diversity extends beyond offering programs & scholarships to law students. We also organize two annual events geared toward increasing diversity in the “pipeline” to the legal profession.
Summer Law Camp
Each summer, Lewis & Clark hosts a week-long day camp at the law school for middle school students. Taught by faculty and law students, the program targets students who would be the first in their family to attend college and shows them how they can affect the legal system rather than just be on the receiving end of it. This program is organized by J.B. Kim, Assistant Dean, Diversity & Academic Resources and Heather McCambly, Assistant Director of Global & Diversity Initiatives.
Diversity Pipeline Mock Trial Day
Every February, the law school organizes a “mock trial” event for local middle and high school students from economically disadvantaged communities. Current law students and alumni join in to volunteer as advisers and judges. The event takes place on a Saturday at the law school campus and is co-sponsored by LSAC as part of the DiscoverLaw.org Months. To get involved e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
