Criminal Practice Program

Justice for All


It's not all about crime and punishment. Oregon Law’s Criminal Practice Program prepares you to practice in the criminal justice system as a prosecutor and as a criminal defense attorney or an attorney representing parents, children and agencies in the juvenile justice and child welfare systems.

Our Criminal Practice Program gives you a rich exposure to the theory and practice of criminal law, juvenile justice and child advocacy law. Oregon Law professors have substantial practical experience as attorneys and law reformers, which enhances their teaching ability to prepare you for practice. 

Oregon Law’s Criminal Practice Program graduates work in the public sector as prosecutors and defense attorneys, private practices, and in criminal justice advocacy practices across the country.
