Admissions

At Willamette University College of Law, we offer a small-school environment that leads to big outcomes in an unrivaled location. With the Oregon State Capitol, Supreme Court and many state agencies just across the street, we provide more opportunities to meet with local attorneys, judges, and lawmakers in a quarter-mile than many schools offer in a whole city. This powerful proximity to the state institutions that create, adjudicate, and enact laws defines much of our students’ experiences, yet it is just the beginning.

Look beyond the capitol building and you'll see:

  • Outstanding faculty who are recognized as top law scholars as well as teachers
  • Degree program options for those new to the field of law (JD, MLS), dual-degree students (JD/MBA, BA/JD), and current legal professionals (LLM)
