Why choose Oregon Law?

Why choose Oregon Law?

What makes Oregon really special is that law school by nature is a really competitive environment, but at Oregon no one wants to succeed at the cost to someone else failing. We take community really seriously and it’s something that really intentional about in everything we do. The culture here at Oregon Law very welcoming and very inviting. When I was touring around at different law schools trying to figure out what place was the right fit for me, nowhere clicked the same way that Oregon Law clicked for me. There are the resources here to equip you to be the attorney that you want to be. There’s a vast amount of hope and opportunity in this place. So you’re looking to write your own story, Oregon’s the perfect place for that. I chose Oregon Law because I was interested in environmental law. I knew that it would be a challenge but I would be surrounded by like-minded people who were smart and wanted to make the world a better place and so far that’s what I’ve found it to be. I think that Oregon law has the best opportunities for a first-year law students. Everybody’s excited to be here. Everybody is passionate about what they’re doing and their interest areas and everybody’s helpful. I enjoy kind of the big school setting where there’s lots of things to do and see in a big college town feel like you’re part of this big community. But the public school interdisciplinary setting is also great because your professors are accessible. My relationship with professors has inspired me to encourage and value others more. You’d never expect to go have lunch with a professor or for your professor to say, “Hey, 10 o’clock on Fridays come play tennis with me.” And that shows genuine care for you as a person and as a lawyer not just as a law student. When I’m not studying, you can usually find me with my friends at a karaoke bar or I were playing volleyball at the rec center or were around hiking. None of my friends are actually from Oregon so it’s been fun to kind of show them around and show them like, “Yeah, Oregon is the best. Check it out.”
