Basic Information

Lewis & Clark Law School is considered the top school in the nation for Environmental law, offering a breadth of curricular offerings and student activities related to the specialty. But it also excels in Animal Law, Criminal Law, Intellectual Property and Business law (A- each). 

The private school, founded in 1915, is Portland Oregon’s only law school and is known for its beautiful campus set adjacent to a forested state park. It earns an A- for diversity. 

The school guarantees every student some form of practical training, with some students working in one of the its nine clinics, and others taking advantage of hundreds of externships. That commitment has helped it earn an A for practical training, making it one of the top schools in the West in that category. And it walks the walk when it comes to environmental commitment, earning top honors for Greenest Law School in 2017. 

Lewis & Clark has a set curriculum that ensures a rigorous legal education with a dedicated focus on career success from day one. First-year students take a two-week intensive course on legal elements. Upper-division students fulfill two writing requirements, a writing-intensive experience and a capstone writing requirement. Additionally, upper-division students must complete a professionalism course.
