How to Reach Us

(Updated April 17, 2020)

To protect the health and safety of everyone in our community, the Office of Admissions is operating remotely until the campus resumes normal operations. Until then, this is how you can reach us: 

  • Class observations via Zoom have paused due to the end of the Spring 2020 semester. Observations of virtual classes will resume when the first summer session begins in June.  



  • Lewis & Clark Law School is well-known for its beautiful green campus that blends in with the surrounding nature of Tryon Creek State Natural Area. For a school with an environmental law program that is ranked #1 in the nation by US News and World Report and given an A+ ranking by preLaw, it makes sense that the campus itself embraces its natural setting.
