Mr. Bricker retired in 1998 after having specialized for 35 years in the representation of injured railroad employees under the Federal Employers’ Liability Act. He graduated from Princeton University in 1958 and from Stanford University School of Law in 1963. He was the President of the Academy of Rail Labor Attorneys and served as President of the Multnomah Bar Association. He received the Honorary Alumnus Award from Lewis & Clark Law School in 1999 and is a member of the Gantenbein Society. Mr. Bricker’s interest in the law school stems from his admiration of his uncle, Louis Schnitzer, a 1930s graduate of Northwestern School of Law.
