2020 Mentor/Mentee Awards
Lewis & Clark has a long tradition of mentorship, pairing 1L students with attorney mentors in the Oregon legal community based on shared interests and backgrounds. This year, students Chloe Williams ’22 and Jenna Richards ’22 were selected as Outstanding Mentee Award recipients.
Hannah McCausland ’14 of Brisbee & Stockton LLC nominated Williams: Chloe actively initiated contact with connections I helped her make and checked in with me regarding her meetings with those connections. Chloe is an outstanding person who will be a great attorney. She is compassionate, attentive, and engaged in the learning process and the legal community.
Michaela Gore ’18 of the Commons Law Center nominated Richards: Jenna has used the mentorship program to the fullest extent, and I hope that my mentorship has helped ease the difficult experience of being a 1L in law school. It has been a real honor to get to guide her through her 1L year.
Ryan Kunkel ’15 of Stoel Rives LLP and Elizabeth Savage ’14 of Karmel Savage PC were selected as Outstanding Mentor Award recipients.
Mentee Nicky Blumm ’22 nominated Kunkel: Ryan’s conscientious and engaged mentorship has been an unexpected delight of my law school experience; it has also decidedly increased my confidence in Lewis & Clark Law’s alumni network.
Mentee Aime Lee Ohlmann ’22 nominated Savage: Elizabeth is an inspiring alumna and a marvel to behold, and has made it possible to imagine the light at the end of the law school tunnel.
