The event also honored four recipients with the First-Year Mentor Program Award, which recognizes outstanding mentors who have worked with first-year students. The honorees were Jermaine Brown, Maura Fahey ’13, Tom Payne ’16, and Sarah Einowski, who were nominated by their mentees.

Lewis & Clark pairs students with attorney mentors in the Oregon legal community based on shared interests and backgrounds. Mentors give first-year students advice on how to manage time commitments, grow to be responsible attorneys, and network with lawyers in their fields of interest. While all 1Ls are assigned mentors, 2Ls and 3Ls can also request a mentor. In 2017–18, there were a total of 202 matched pairs in the program.

We are grateful to all the alumni and friends who generously give their time to support our students. For more information on the law school’s Mentor Program, visit go.lclark.edu/law/mentors.
