Faculty, Staff, and Friends: Where Are They Now?

Remember that professor or staff member who was so helpful to you in a moment of need? Or perhaps, someone who pushed you farther than you thought possible? We’ve used the fabulous caricatures by Professor Emeritus Ron Lansing to help your search.

“I was right there in the room with most of the people I drew. The secret of good caricature is capturing the person—the feeling you got being with them, the way they stood, what they did—and having that come through in the drawing. Sometimes it took two or three tries to capture it.”

Lansing stopped drawing caricatures a few years ago. The caricatures featured here depict professors who received a Leo Levenson Award or outstanding teaching. See Lansing’s full set of drawings online at and in person on the first floor of the Legal Resource Center. (Note: Ron’s drawings are not a complete list of faculty and staff.)

Where Are They Now?

  • Public Interest Law Project at 30
    January 2020 marks the 30th anniversary of Lewis  &  Clark Law School’s Public Interest Law Project (PILP), a student-run organization that rewards and promotes the service of developing public interest attorneys.
  • The Lasting Legacy of Scholarships

    Paul Casey, a longtime supporter of Lewis &  Clark Law School, has made it possible for dozens of students to attend law school.

  • The Winding Vines of Post-Grad Life
    While a majority of Lewis & Clark Law School graduates become practicing attorneys, some notable alumni have used the rigorous skills they gained in law school to branch off in other directions. These six alumni remind us that the Lewis & Clark community includes people of many different callings.
