Giving to University of Oregon School of Law
Our success at the University of Oregon School of Law depends on the private support of our alumni and friends.
The opportunity to make a difference with your gift has never been greater.
You can support the law school’s students, faculty, and programs through an unrestricted gift to the Oregon Law Fund. We are committed to being good stewards of the money we raise from alumni and friends, and the Oregon Law Fund permits us to direct resources where they are most needed each year.
Or you can choose to support a specific interest area at the law school. Examples include gifts directed toward student scholarships, faculty support, clinics and externships, academic centers, student organizations, alumni outreach programs, or our Career Center for current students and alumni. You may also choose to support a specific interest area at the law school or to make an unrestricted gift to the Oregon Law Fund by contacting Jake Logan or 541-346-3865.
We rely on your private support, now more than ever, to help Oregon Law fulfill its potential, and we thank you in advance for your help in the following areas:
The Oregon Law Fund provides essential, unrestricted support that can be directed to wherever needs are most urgent, including financial aid, faculty research, student organizations, library resources, and important initiatives of the dean. Dedicated to everything it takes to provide our law students an outstanding legal education, the Oregon Law Fund is a necessary source of steady and adaptive support.
The cost of legal education has never been higher and state funding lags severely behind. It is very difficult for law school students to work with their demanding academic schedules. Most law school students must rely on student loans to meet the cost of tuition and living expenses.
The current average debt load of a student graduating from Oregon Law is $90,000 to $120,000.
Today's law school students are our lawyers and leaders of tomorrow. Scholarships are powerful incentives for attracting and retaining talented students at Oregon Law.
Public service at the UO School of Law is thriving, with up to 50% of Oregon Law graduates entering public service careers annually. Oregon Law’s Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP) reflects the school’s commitment to public service by increasing graduate access to public service careers.
LRAP recipients improve access to justice through their work with legal aid clients, migrant farmworkers, in national and international human rights organizations, as environmental attorneys, tribal attorneys and more.
With a combination of low starting public service salaries and unprecedented debt, Oregon Law’s LRAP is vital to our public service mission-if graduates cannot alleviate the burdens of debt and low public service salaries, they will not be able to afford public service careers.
