Student Life

Students find a sense of community rather than competition, frequent student-faculty interaction, and supportive friendships at the School of Law. The School of Law’s student body is diverse in background, age, and experience, and each student has different expectations for their time in law school. We are committed to assisting our students with their goals by providing a professional, collegial environment with an accomplished faculty and world-class facilities. This page provides students with information about the following resources:

  • The Student Affairs Office, which helps students to work toward personal and academic success. The Student Affairs administration and staff are available for academic, financial, and personal advising and counseling, as well as for scholarship information and help with summer academic plans and study abroad.
  • The Center for Career Planning and Professional Development, an ambitious program that yields impressive results for our graduating students. The Career Center offers a variety of forums led by practicing lawyers, a mock interview program, mentoring programs, networking opportunities, on-campus interviews, opportunities to participate in career fairs and outside interview programs, and assistance in applying for judicial clerkships, among its many services.
  • Academics, the sine qua non of the School of Law. On this page, you will discover additional information about the School of Law’s rigorous curriculum, including information about the J.D. degree, Oregon’s concurrent degree programs, the School of Law’s many certificate programs, the School of Law’s clinics and externships, law student-run academic activities, and the School of Law’s specialized academic programs and Centers of Excellence.
  • Tuition and fees. At the School of Law, your educational investment will open many doors. You have opportunities here to conduct original research, complete clinics and externships, and begin to make an impact in the field of law: all experiences that will propel you into your future. You will be both inspired and equipped to succeed.
  • Financial Aid increases the accessibility of your legal education, and provides funds to help offset the cost of that application. Funds come from private, government, and institutional sources.
  • Housing and Moving. These links provide information about both the University of Oregon’s housing system, as well as to a more informal guide to moving to and within Eugene.
  • Maps are a must, not only for visitors, but for students wishing to explore the wider campus. Our maps site provides not only directions and travel information, but maps of campus wifi coverage, a virtual tour of the campus, a map showing lighted pathways and night Breeze bus routes, and a parking map, among others.
  • Places to Go, Things to See is the School of Law’s continually evolving guide to fun in the Eugene-Springfield area and throughout Oregon.
  • Student Organizations. The School of Law’s vibrant student groups run the law journals and moot court competitions, and organize around areas of political, personal, and legal interest. They also put on major conferences, fundraisers, and other events each year, reaching audiences far outside the School of Law. In recent years, topics ranged from a regional water crisis to international law, from Plan B to Northwest wine.
  • MyLaw is the School of Law’s Web portal. From MyLaw, you can access the School of Law’s facebook, obtain your computer and software serial numbers, apply for scholarships, obtain outlines, view The Holding, manage your mailing list subscriptions, and perform a host of other tasks.
  • Duckweb is the University’s information system, from which you may view your grades.
  • Webmail connects you to the University’s Web-based email system.
