​School of Law

The University of Oregon’s School of Law first opened in Portland in 1884. With a history like that, not to mention boasting the highest concentration of Oregon law alumni located anywhere, it seems only fitting that interested students have the opportunity to spend their third year at the iconic White Stag Block enrolled in specialized courses and unique externships.

UO law students have the opportunity to complete their third year in Portland. A special mentorship program, an exciting guest speaker series, and countless professional networking events gives students the chance to build relationships with Portland-area employers and practitioners, providing them with a number of platforms with which to actively engage with students.
