The University of Oregon School of Law has hired Michael Quillin to serve as supervising attorney for the law school's Domestic Violence Clinic, which provides comprehensive legal services to low-income survivors while educating Oregon law students. In this position, Quillin will represent survivors of domestic violence, stalking and sexual assault, supervise and instruct students enrolled in the program and work closely with community partners to ensure the program's success.
Quillin graduated from Oregon Law in 2008 with an emphasis in family and juvenile law.

In April 2012, the Oregon Law Students Public Interest Fund honored Quillin for his work with the Bandiero Award for Outstanding PublicService by a local lawyer. He is an active member of the Lane County Bar Association and in 2010 was made co-chair of the association's New Lawyer'scommittee.
