The Office of Student Affairs (OSA) provides comprehensive support for law students. This office is where students conduct most of their daily business -- turning in Legal Research and Writing assignments, registering for classes, scheduling rooms for student organization events, and rescheduling examinations -- just to name a few. The OSA also oversee registration for law courses, administering examinations, and Commencement in the spring.
The purpose of the Student Emergency Fund is to provide assistance to Willamette students in emergency situations. It is intended to assist students during times of crisis by providing financial support where a clear need exists. This fund supports students whose hardship is impacting their program attendance and functionality and is to be used after all other financial resources have been exhausted.
Students should be following the access plans, public health guidance, and the Honor Code. Should you encounter concerning behaviors during your access week, we would ask that you (a) address those issues directly but politely with that individual, and/or (b) report those concerns via the Report about Concerning Behaviors form.
Class Attendance Tracking
The attendance is recorded weekly as we receive attendance sheets from the faculty; however, it is ultimately the student's responsibility to track attendance, as reporting may not always be up to date.
If you find a discrepancy in the records (for example, if you were marked absent on a day that you were in class), email or contact the professor to ask them to notify the OSA to correct the attendance date in question. We can only make a correction if the request is from the Professor. If you know you were absent on a certain date, but your record doesn't reflect it, please contact either the professor or the OSA to see if the attendance sheets have been turned in for the class in question.
Fall Reopening Plan
View the plans from the College of Law to reopen for the coming academic year in accordance with public health guidelines. The College’s “three-lane approach” seeks to maximize flexible learning options for students. Please review Dean Dobbins's email regarding building and classroom protocols.
The OSA notary services are limited to WUCL students and graduates for purposes of application to state bar examinations.
