Housed in the iconic White Stag building in downtown Portland, the Portland Program puts students into the heart of the city that is home to the highest concentration of Oregon Law alumni anywhere.
Students enrolled in the Portland Program have access to a full range of student support services as well as unique opportunities to meet and build relationships with Portland-area employers and practitioners, through a special mentorship program, an exciting guest speaker series, and through countless professional networking events. Indeed, through the Portland Program, Oregon Law provides Portland-area alumni and other practitioners a number of platforms with which to actively engage with students.
