Be a change agent at Willamette Law

Willamette Law is at the confluence of law creation, adjudication, statewide policy development, and the pursuit of justice. In other words, we’re in an ideal location to study law if you’re interested in law and government and being an agent of change.

Willamette is located literally across the street from Oregon’s State Capitol and Supreme Court. Our neighbors here in Oregon’s capital city of Salem also include state agencies, lobbyists, and advocacy organizations, and a healthy collection of regional offices for large, medium, and small law firms, and solo practitioners.

Our own legal centers, clinics, and Placement Office have close ties to the top echelon of the legal community. A good portion of our esteemed faculty consists of these influential legal minds as well, including a former clerk to US Supreme Court Justice Stevens and two former Oregon Supreme Court Justices, Paul De Muniz and Edwin Peterson.

Willamette’s relationships with our good neighbors enhance our students’ access to the processes and people who shape, write, advocate, and pass new laws and adjudicate, evaluate, and amend existing laws. To that end, students can earn a certificate in law and government, work on public policy at the Oregon Law Commission, or participate in our Center for Constitutional Government.

In addition to careers as lawyers, many of our alumni hold elected office including Washington Governor Jay Inslee JD’76, and Alaska’s US Senator Lisa Murkowski JD’85.

I invite you to come visit our beautiful campus and see for yourself the ties we have between our law school and government. Click here to get more information or to schedule a visit. And I hope that you will become the change you want to see.
