Info Session: The Roosevelt Robinson Scholarship & Careers In Public Service

Date: 4:00pm - 5:00pm PST January 21 Location: McCarty Classroom Complex, Room 2

  • To honor Roosevelt Robinson’s legacy of inspiring ordinary people to do extraordinary things, his friends and colleagues established the Roosevelt Robinson Minority Scholarship through generous gifts to Lewis & Clark Law School.
  • After graduating from Lewis and Clark, Mark clerked for the Honorable Rebecca Duncan at the Oregon Court of Appeals.  Following his clerkship, he worked as an associate attorney at Janet Hoffman and Associates, where he represented individuals in state and federal criminal cases, securities cases, and university misconduct proceedings.  Mark now serves as a Deputy Defender at the Appellate Division of the Office of Public Defense Services, where he represents individuals from around the state in criminal appeals before Oregon’s appellate courts.
