    Lewis & Clark Law School officially launched its Centennial Year with a fundraising effort in support of three important areas of the school.  We encourage you to explore how the Centennial Campaign is advancing the Law School today and ask for your support during this important year.  Your gift to the Centennial Campaign recognizes the accomplishments and innovation of the law school over the last 100 years, and will help guarantee exceptional first-rate programs and national rating for the next 100 years.

    Three areas that you gift will support:

    1. Scholarships

    2. Faculty Support

    3. Annual Fund



    Centennial Cornerstone - $100,000
    Help lay the foundation for the next 100 years of excellence at Lewis & Clark Law School by making a generous pledge of $100,000 to support a four-year sponsorship of a “Centennial Scholar”.  Selected scholars will be recognized in the media and with a name plaque over their campus office door.  
    In recognition of your generous gift, a special Centennial Cornerstone plaque with the names of donors will be on permanent display at the Law School. 

    For more information, please contact Joset Grenon,
