Oregon Law Announces Formation of Nonprofit Clinic

The University of Oregon Law School is constantly adding new opportunities for students to broaden their knowledge about the scope of possibilities available to law graduates. With the generous support of University of Oregon alumnus Tom Bowerman and his late mother, Barbara Bowerman, the School of Law is proud to announce the formation of the Nonprofit Clinic.

This innovative clinic, a joint venture with the UO’s Department of Planning, Public Policy & Management, will help students learn more about nonprofit work with the assistance of experienced practitioners in the field, and through hands-on experience working with non-profit clients. Through the program, students will learn how to negotiate the legal landscape of nonprofit organizations, which will allow them to help these facilitators of community improvement in the most constructive way. Nonprofit organizations provide a valuable service, but they face a variety of financial and legal obstacles. With this new program, the law school will guide interested students in the various ways they can assist these programs in reaching full potential.

This is just one of the exciting new experiences awaiting law students at the University of Oregon. With your continued support, the school can continue to develop the curriculum, facilities and opportunities for the next generation of legal practitioners.
