Open Houses

Are you thinking about attending law school? Join the College of Law on Saturday, April 13, 2019 for our Spring Open House. Learn about Willamette Law and the unique advantages of studying law across the street from the Oregon State Capitol.

Willamette Law invites admitted and prospective students to attend our Spring Open House, Saturday, April 13, 2019. Parking is free on the weekends except in any reserved parking spots. We recommend that you park in either the Student/Faculty/Staff Lot (B3) or in the Visitor Parking Lot (C3). Here is a campus map. The law school is a short walk from both of these lots.
