Give to Oregon Law

Why Give?

You have a place in the story of Oregon Law.

The law students of today will become the leaders, lawyers, and advocates of our future who will ensure the integrity of our laws, help people to innovate and thrive, protect our communities, and advance social, economic, and environmental justice. Your belief in academic excellence and access to legal education inspires our faculty and students to change the world for the better.

You can make a lasting impact with your giving.

Jeffrey Beaver and Ashley Hamilton

Impactful Giving:

The Jeffrey A. Beaver Law Student Scholarship endowment will help provide financial assistance to students from underrepresented populations and economically disadvantaged backgrounds.

“This scholarship is my way to tell [students of color] that I believe in them and that they do belong.” 
– Jeffrey Beaver

“The law interests me because it is the foundation for social interaction and, through that, positive social change. Receiving a scholarship is a relief and motivation to keep my energy focused on my legal studies.” 
– Ashley Hamilton, inaugural recipient of the Jeffrey A. Beaver Law Student Scholarship
