EUGENE, Ore. -- (June 16, 2015) -- The University of Oregon School of Law is pleased to congratulate the 13 members of the Class of 2015 who have been elected to Order of the Coif. Tyler Harkness ranked first in the class.

Considered one of the highest honors a law student can receive, the Order of the Coif is a national honor society for law school graduates at member institutions. To gain membership into the order, a student must earn a J.D. and a grade point average that places him or her in the top 10 percent of the graduating class. The UO School of Law, the only law school in Oregon with membership in the honor society, organized a chapter of the Order of the Coif in 1934.
