Some interesting facts about University of Oregon School of Law

Founded in 1884, the University of Oregon School of Law is Oregon’s only public law school and is recognized for its history of leadership, innovation, and its long-standing commitment to social justice. The School of Law is one of several professional schools of the University of Oregon, which is located in Eugene, the state’s second largest city. The School also offers a program for third-year law students at the Downtown Portland campus of the University. The University of Oregon is a “Tier 1” national public research university and is the only Oregon institution elected to membership in the prestigious Association of American Universities.

The University of Oregon School of Law, in 1923, became one of the first law schools to be accredited by the American Bar Association. Oregon Law is regarded as one of the best law schools in the state, and as one of the top public law schools for environmental law, dispute resolution, and legal research and writing. The School of Law has enjoyed such national recognition for more than a decade.

The academic experience is appropriately competitive, but is also defined by a strong camaraderie among its students. This reputation has increasingly attracted a large percentage of students from outside of Oregon. In 2017, that percentage was 71 percent. Students and faculty at Oregon Law share a fundamental optimism for the study of law and its practice. Graduates, focused on the unique work-life balance that characterize the Pacific Northwest, practice principally in Seattle and Portland, though Oregon Law alumni also work throughout the West and in Washington, DC.
