  • The National Black Law Students Association (NBLSA) and Lewis & Clark Law School, in association with discoverlaw.org, hosted 80 middle school students from St. Andrew Nativity School for a day of action.

    The Lewis & Clark Law Black Law Students Association (BLSA) board members Brandon Kline, Anthony Blake, Josh Volvovic, Michelle Stowers, and Andrea Thompson and Lewis & Clark Law NBLSA board member Royce Williams organized the days events.

    During the first activity, the middle school students learned about the importance of writing personal statements for college admission. NBLSA volunteers guided students through a typical personal statement and gave suggestions about what each student could write for their own personal statement. Then, the students wrote their own personal statements and got immediate feedback from the NBLSA volunteers.

    Lunch was a big hit with the students. They got to experience a college buffet and chat with the NBLSA volunteers about life as law students.

    For the second activity, J.B. Kim, Lewis & Clark Law School’s Assistant Dean of Diversity & Academic Resources, led the students through a legal writing exercise. Students were given a fact pattern about a custody dispute and asked to write a letter to their client advising him on his chances of gaining custody. NBLSA volunteers worked closely with the students explaining the legal matters and statutes surrounding custody. The students were animated and engaged with the NBLSA volunteers.

    Everyone was sad to see the day come to an end. For more, see The Oregonian article!
