Press Release

On Monday, March 12, Congressman Blumenauer paid a visit to his alma mater, Lewis and Clark Law School, where he had lunch with Lewis and Clark President Barry Glassner, Law School Dean Robert Klonoff, and faculty and student leaders.  “Lewis and Clark continues to contribute to Portland’s reputation for livability,” Congressman Blumenauer told the assembled group.  “From your undergraduate programs to your Graduate School and Law School, Lewis and Clark attracts some of the brightest students to Portland and, in turn, produces valuable resources for the city’s continuing efforts to create livable neighborhoods, a vibrant downtown, and a sustainable economy.”

Following a hearty discussion of higher education’s challenges and needs, the Congressman visited classes on Animal Law and Public Interest Law, where he shared his perspectives and praised the students’ choice of Lewis and Clark Law School. 

He wrapped up his visit with a tour of the Edna L. Holmes Residence Hall.  This facility, due to open to both undergraduate and graduate students this fall, was designed with extensive input from students and incorporates sufficient energy-efficient design and construction elements to qualify it for a Gold LEED rating.
