    By Barbara Allen Burke B.A. ’83, M.A. ’87
    I first came to Oregon way back in the fall of 1979. I was about to start school at Lewis & Clark, and my parents drove me on the 1,300-mile trip from Colorado.
       I sat in the backseat along with my navy blue metal locker, a large-ish suitcase, and my electric typewriter. I was dreaming about moving into my dorm room, worried about whether my roommates would like me, and trying to fathom what college life would be like. I was pretty quiet on the trip, as I remember.

    In November, Patty Cassidy M.S. ’94 led a group of senior citizens outside to put their raised gardens to bed for the winter. Standing or working from wheelchairs, they pulled up old perennials, raked and turned the dirt, and planted a crop of Austrian winter peas to infuse the soil with nitrogen.

    As the sun began to set on a balmy summer day in Southern California, an Electra cruise ship motored past luxury yachts, sailboats, and multimillion-dollar homes in Newport Harbor. On deck, a wedding ceremony was in progress. Philip Bradley B.S. ’59 pronounced the happy couple husband and wife, smiling as they sealed their union with a kiss.

    Nestled in a rustic campground at the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies in New York state, Susan Kirtley B.A. ’95 fiddled with her tape recorder. The hot, still air seemed to magnify her nervousness as she sat down to interview noted comic artist Lynda Barry.

  • About America’s Last Frontier

    The Alaska Bar Association has 4,000 members in a state twice the size of Texas. (For comparison, the Texas Bar Association has more than 92,000 attorneys.)

    • Alaska has a state-funded, unified court system with no separate municipal courts.
    • Alaska was a leader in selecting judges based on merit, which eliminates the need for judges to campaign for office. Today, more than 30 other states also select judges this way.
    • Alaska is the only state with an entire constitutional article aimed at safeguarding natural resources within its boundaries.
    • Most law firms and attorneys are based in Anchorage, Alaska’s largest city. While winters are cold, summer temperatures range from the 60s to 80s, with low humidity and long days.
    • Alaska’s three largest cities are Anchorage (pop. 291,826), Fairbanks (pop. 31,535), and the state capitol, Juneau (pop. 32,275). The smallest incorporated city is Bettles (pop. 12), 35 miles north of the Arctic Circle, accessible by ice road and commercial airstrip.
  • “It’s a great place for interns, externs, and graduates because of the state’s needs in the law school’s areas of emphasis.” Libby DavisJ.D. ’93, Associate Dean

  • “By the time I finished law school, I’d already drafted appellate briefs, appeared in court, and argued cases and motions. When it came time to get a job, I had already shown I could handle the work.”Quinlan SteinerJ.D. ’98
