Lewis & Clark Law School is recognized among the best with three of its programs receiving top rankings in U.S. News & World Report.

#2 Environmental Law
#11 Part-Time Program
#12 Legal Writing (Lawyering)

The law school’s environmental law program has been ranked #1 or #2 since the magazine began ranking schools with this specialty. The part-time program also frequently ranks among schools with the best options for students who need flexible scheduling. Lewis & Clark’s legal writing (lawyering) program returns to the top-ranked list at #12.

The law school continues to make distinctions in various areas compared to its peers. Lewis & Clark continues to receive recognition in the “Best School for Practical Skills” edition of National Jurist, and the LLM degree in environmental, natural resources, and energy law is again listed in LLM Guide’s Top 10.

As Portland’s law school, with alumni across the nation and in more than 36 countries, we take pride in the exceptional academics and robust professional training provided to those who choose to join our extraordinary community!
