Business Law’s 10th Anniversary
This year, the Business Law Program at Lewis & Clark Law School celebrates its 10th anniversary. What began as a modest program 10 years ago has mushroomed into a comprehensive program with a vibrant core curriculum, practical skills training opportunities, and specialty courses that focus on everything from cyberspace law and sports law to entertainment law and patent litigation.
The program kicked off its anniversary at the 10th Annual Business Law Spring Luncheon on April 22. The lunch honored business law student scholars, adjunct professors, roundtable participants, and volunteers. Michael Powell, owner of Powell’s Books, was the luncheon’s keynote speaker. Wayne Perry J.D. ’75, chief executive officer of Edge Wireless, was recognized with the inaugural Distinguished Business Law Graduate award.
Environmental Law’s 35th Anniversary
The Environmental and Natural Resources Law Program marks its 35th anniversary this year. The program will kick off its celebration with the 18th annual Natural Resources Law Institute Distinguished Visitor Lecture on September 22. All past Distinguished Environmental Graduates will be invited to the event since it is also the 10th anniversary of the awards program.
The law school’s environmental law program is the oldest of its kind in the nation. It boasts excellent faculty, one of the most extensive environmental law curricula in the country, the first environmental law journal in the country, and clinics that serve public interest clients worldwide.
Lewis & Clark’s environmental law program is ranked first in the nation this year, according to U.S. News & World Report. The program has received the top ranking six times in the past decade.
