From start-up to merger, idea to initial public offering, acquisition to sale, legal issues punctuate the life of a business. The Center for Business Law and Innovation at Lewis & Clark provides comprehensive programs in business and commercial law, as well as opportunities to build practical skills through opportunities and connections with the Oregon business community.
