Jason Kafoury is a graduate of Tulane Law. He became a member of the Oregon State Bar in 2009. After his first week of law school, Jason was forced to evacuate Hurricane Katrina and ended up completing the 2005 fall semester at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. When he returned to Tulane, Jason helped lead the Moot Court Trial team to finish third in the nation out of 224 law schools at the American Association for Justice’s annual competition. Jason’s legal experience includes working for the Environmental Law Foundation (E.L.F.) in Oakland, where he helped draft a strategic plan to protect and expand the “Public Trust Doctrine” in California. As a summer associate at Lerach Coughlin Stoia Geller Rudman & Robbins in San Diego, Jason worked extensively on a consumer class action against Capital One credit cards for targeting and defrauding low-income citizens.
Jason grew up in Portland, graduated from Lincoln High School and received his B.A. in Political Science at Colorado College in 2000. After college, Jason worked with Ralph Nader for five years, and helped run Mr. Nader’s 2000, 2004 and 2008 presidential campaigns. Right before law school, Jason embarked on a 20 country/five month trip around the world.
