Welcome to L&C Law’s only student organization dedicated to preserving marine ecosystems!

Here at ORCA our mission is to explore the complex and fascinating legal realm of oceanic affairs, as well as to facilitate volunteer efforts and encourage practical sustainability choices. Encompassing, among other fields, those of environmental, animal, and international law, ORCA will provide an opportunity for students with diverse interests and backgrounds to form an interdisciplinary alliance predicated on preserving the delicate ecosystems within the Earth’s oceans. ORCA seeks to form close relationships with other student groups, local nonprofits, NGOs, environmentally ethical companies, and Lewis & Clark staff and alumni to facilitate a growing awareness of both the history of oceanic legal issues and of the current state of oceanic litigation.
