First Assignments & Syllabi

Due to the University’s ongoing effort to overhaul the College of Law website, first assignments and syllabi will not be posted here as normal. Instead, you can anticipate receiving your first assignments via one of the following (a) by email from your professor, (b) posted on the course WISE site, or (c) posted in the Google Drive Folder linked here within a folder labeled with your course number and name (e.g. LAW 101 - Civil Procedure - Dobbins) (NOTE that you will need to log into your Willamette Google Account before you can access that folder.)

If you have trouble accessing your first assignments and syllabi, please email for assistance.

Court Certification

Please review the rules for court certification, as they differ from state-to-state.  Be advised that in addition to the court certification rules specified by the state, Willamette University College of Law requires the successful completion of Evidence and Professional Responsibility, and is in good academic standing (2.30 cumulative GPA or higher) before the Dean will certify the student.  This is information is also disclosed in the Law Student Handbook.
