Admissions

At Willamette University College of Law, a legal education is more than lectures and textbooks.

Here your education will include small classes and the close relationships, innovative ideas and collegial support of outstanding faculty, staff and students who are teachers, mentors and friends.

Through our clinics, externships and practical skills courses, you’ll experience the issues, challenges and work of practicing lawyers.

And you’ll grow in confidence in yourself and what you can do with your law degree.

Here the tools for success surround you. Here careers begin.
