Diversity

Diversity, inclusion, and cultural competency are critical to fulfilling our mission as a law school and as part of the legal community.

As a professional school preparing the next generation of our nation’s lawyers, we believe that our promise to support diversity is both an academic and professional duty. (Read the college’s resolution affirming the inherent educational benefits of diversity for the college environment).

Increasing the diversity of the legal profession and developing the cultural competency of our students is part of the Law School’s commitment to promoting equal access to justice and training the best professionals in all fields of legal practice.

This website is a resource for students, staff, faculty, and prospective students to learn about the diversity of experience and background on our campus and to access relevant resources, events and policies.

Indigenous Land Acknowledgement

Lewis & Clark College purposefully reflects on the history of the land it occupies. Prior to the newcomers arriving in this area, the indigenous land of what would later be called Multnomah County was home to many tribal people. We honor the indigenous people on whose traditional and ancestral homelands we stand: the Multnomah, Kathlamet, Clackamas, Tumwater, and Watalala bands of the Chinook; the Tualatin Kalapuya; and many other indigenous nations of the Columbia River.

It is important to acknowledge the ancestors of this place and recognize that we are here because of the sacrifices forced upon them. In remembering these communities, we honor their legacy, their lives, and their descendants.
