Community Development and Entrepreneurship Center

The Business Law Program at Lewis & Clark Law School offers students a wide range of practical skills opportunities to choose from. Under the supervision of trained clinicians, students gain valuable real-world experience in supportive environments. At the Small Business Legal Clinic (SBLC), students assist small business clients in a wide range of transactions, ranging from entity formation to contract drafting, regulatory issues, intellectual property protection, and lease negotiation.  At the Low Income Taxpayer Clinic, students represent clients before the Internal Revenue Service and the tax court. At the Lewis & Clark Legal Clinic, students hone their litigation skills representing clients in consumer, bankruptcy, unemployment, and housing cases. In the Internship Seminars, students practice drafting documents and learn substantive law in class, then work in placements with high growth potential start-ups or in corporate counsel offices in such places as Adidas, NIKE, Mentor Graphics, and more.
