About Willamette University College of Law

Willamette University College of Law

Established in 1883, Willamette University College of Law has been accredited by the ABA since 1921 and offers a learning environment that is distinctive among law schools. Located across the street from the state Capitol complex and the Oregon Supreme Court, the college is situated in the epicenter of state law, government and business.

The College of Law emphasizes small enrollment, excellence in teaching and a high level of faculty-student interaction. We also boast a student-faculty ratio of  15-to-1. Our select enrollment of fewer than 430 students creates an intellectual intimacy unmatched by most law schools in the United States. As a community, we are committed to the advancement of knowledge through research and scholarship, to diversity, and to public service. Willamette law students should expect to be challenged, to defend their opinions, to think and rethink their ideas, and to leave with a heightened respect for themselves and confidence in what they can do.
