Wayne Morse Center for Law and Politics
This independent center at the law school brings scholars and activists to Oregon whose work advances a theme of inquiry that changes every two years. The center selects one law and one UO faculty member each year as resident scholars. The center offers scholarships to student fellows and project grants to UO faculty, staff, students, and community members.

The Conflict and Dispute Resolution master's degree program is structured to prepare a new generation of scholars, practitioners, and educators to rethink traditional approaches to conflict. Grounded in dispute resolution theory, the program combines broad interdisciplinary training and opportunities for individualized study and skills development.

Oregon Law faculty also work with a number of the University of Oregon's Research Centers and Institutes.
