Law Giving


The mission of the law school from its inception has been teaching young adults how to be lawyers. This is what makes our law school special — its focus on teaching ability as the primary basis on which faculty are hired, evaluated, and retained.

As a donor I know you understand how special the law school is. Every day, donors like you are making an impact on the legal profession by supporting students, faculty, and programs at Lewis & Clark Law School. Yet, this is a difficult period in legal education and law schools face increasing financial pressures nationwide. Law schools that respond proactively with aggressive recruitment strategies, innovative curricula to meet the changing needs of the legal marketplace, and heightened focus on teaching effectiveness and student placement will thrive in this new environment; while law schools that refuse to adapt will stagnate and eventually fail. 

Drawing on its more than 100 year history and increasing national prominence, Lewis & Clark Law School is uniquely positioned to assume a leadership role in legal education in the years ahead, but needs the active support of its alumni and donors to attain its full potential. Please help the law school reach its full potential by renewing your support, today.
