Sarah Lora Leads Low Income Taxpayer Clinic (LITC)
Oregon attorney Sarah Lora took leadership of Lewis & Clark Law School’s Low Income Taxpayer Clinic (LITC) this year, after Jan Pierce retired.
Lora comes to the clinic with a background in representing underserved individuals on tax matters. Most recently, she served as the director of Legal Aid Services of Oregon’s Low Income Tax Clinic, specializing in language access, due process, and immigrant tax issues at the IRS and Oregon Department of Revenue.
Lora received her JD from Brooklyn Law School in 2002 and served as a clerk for the Honorable W. Hunt Dumont for the Morris County Court in Morristown, New Jersey. In 2003, she served as an attorney in the farmworker program for the Legal Aid Services of Oregon, where she represented farm workers in a wide variety of employment issues, including tax controversy.
In her new role, Lora is thrilled to have the opportunity to teach law students skills in interviewing, fact investigation, legal research, document and letter drafting, motion practice, discovery, trial preparation, and more.
