Legal Research and Writing

Welcome to Oregon Law’s Legal Research and Writing Program

Lawyers write. All lawyers write, and many lawyers write a lot. And before they write, lawyers conduct comprehensive research to learn what the law is.

That means two things: First, your law school education needs to include a strong program in legal writing and research. Second, you need to learn from professors who are committed to training students to become excellent writers and researchers—in other words, excellent lawyers.

Oregon Law has an outstanding Legal Research and Writing Program. It has been consistently ranked in the Top 10 in the nation by professors at schools across the country. And the faculty at Oregon Law is outstanding.
