J.D. Orientation

J.D. Orientation: August 14th, 2017

Orientation is designed to develop our students' sense of "home" with the law school community and Eugene. We enjoy a high quality of life both within and without the William W. Knight Law Center and want our incoming students to quickly develop that same feeling of inclusion. We believe that our students learn better when they can focus on the tasks presented. Orientation helps resolve many of the issues that arise with the move to Eugene and the beginning of a rigorous course of study.
