Admissions Events

We Look Forward to Meeting You

There are opportunities all year round to meet our  Admissions team, alumni, and other members of the Lewis & Clark Law School community. 

Nothing compares to experiencing the lush forest that surrounds our campus and being inside the meditative spaces of our unique buildings. If you are in the Portland area, we encourage you to schedule an on-campus visit. 

Under the skybridge.

 

Meet Admissions On the Road

If you are not currently able to visit us in Portland, please check out our recruitment schedule to find out if we might be in your area. Our Admissions team and alumni volunteers travel all over the country to speak with prospective students at law school fairs, forums hosted by the Law School Admission Council, and other pre-law events. To view our latest recruitment schedule at a glance, click here.

For other opportunities to get to know us in person, check this page frequently for updates regarding events happening both on and off-campus. 

A note about LSAC Forums and law school fairs:

Law school forums sponsored by the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) are held around the country and are open to the general public. If you would like to attend a forum, we encourage you to register ahead of time. For events on college and university campuses where you are not a student, you may want to contact the college’s career advising office or pre-law advisor to inquire whether non-students are allowed to attend. Feel free to contact our office for more information about events or to schedule a campus visit.

  • Juliet Stumpf 12:00pm - 1:00pm: Lunch & Learn: Family Separation in a Time of COVID: Crimmigration, Consent, and the Othering of Central American Mothers

    Lunch & Learn: A Series Presented by L&C Faculty

    Topic: Family Separation in a Time of COVID: Crimmigration, Consent, and the Othering of Central American Mothers

    In 2018, President Trump announced that family separation was over (or did he?). Professor Stumpf will address two current issues of separation and prolonged detention of noncitizen children: first, the indefinite detention of teens separated from their families and detained indefinitely in our backyard in two facilities in Oregon and Washington, and second, ICE’s strategy for circumventing a court order limiting the detention of children through consensual separation of largely Central American mothers from their children. The session will address the impact of COVID, and explore the racialized and gendered context behind family separation.

    Presenter: Professor Juliet Stumpf

    Note: This event is open only to Lewis & Clark Law School faculty, staff, and students.

  • Professor Robert Klonoff 12:00pm - 1:00pm: Lunch & Learn: COVID-19 and the Flood of Civil Litigation: An Assessment

    Lunch & Learn: A Series Presented by L&C Faculty

    Topic: COVID-19 and the Flood of Civil Litigation: An Assessment

    Rarely, if ever, has a single event caused so much litigation, of such a wide variety, so quickly. In only months, thousands of individual and class action lawsuits have been filed against prisons, hospitals, airlines, cruise lines, gyms, government entities, universities, and many other kinds of defendants. The claims have sought damages and orders to halt the allegedly improper conduct. My talk will survey this litigation and discuss some of the unique legal issues raised by this litigation. It will also discuss legislative responses, including proposals to immunize various categories of defendants from civil liability.

    Presenter: Professor Robert Klonoff

    Note: This event is open only to Lewis & Clark Law School faculty, staff, and students.
