Alumni joined faculty and students for the 23rd annual Business Law Spring Luncheon to celebrate the accomplishments of business law students and the generosity of community members who have given time, resources, and talent to the program.

The Distinguished Business Law Graduate award was presented to Ambyr O’Donnell ’01 by Dean Jennifer Johnson. O’Donnell, who has dedicated her legal career to advising technology companies, served as a chair of the Business Law Section of the Oregon State Bar and is a member of the law school’s Board of Visitors. In 2013, the Association of Corporate Counsel named her one of its “Top 10 30-Somethings.”

Henry J. Casey Professor of Law Lydia Loren highlighted the accomplishments of the business law scholarship recipients, leaders of student groups, and the managing boards of the Lewis & Clark Law Review. Originally founded as the Journal of Small and Emerging Business Law, the review is ranked No. 40 in the nation among general-interest law journals.

Also noted for recognition were the Small Business Legal Clinic (SBLC) and Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic (LITC) in downtown Portland. The two clinics serve more than 350 clients each year.
