Lewis & Clark Law Schools origins began with the University of Oregon establishing a Department of Law in Portland in 1885. After the Oregon State Legislature moved the program to Eugene, Oregon in 1915, several law faculty members resisted the move, and formed the Northwestern College of Law. Lewis & Clark Law School is also known as Northwestern School of Law of Lewis and Clark College and it is an American Bar Association-approved private law school in Portland, Oregon. In 1970 this school received ABA approval and joined in the Association of American Law Schools in 1973. Lewis & Clark Law School offers the Juris Doctor degree, including a range of scholastic concentrations and legal certificate programs, as well as the Master of Laws degree. Each class in the three-year J.D. program has approximately 200 students. The first-year class is broken into six pods of approximately 35 students who take most first-year classes together. The dean of Lewis & Clark Law School is Jennifer J. Johnson; Erskine Wood Sr. endowed Professor of Law.
