Tours and Class Visits
Oregon Law students and faculty enjoy meeting prospective students throughout the year. During the school year, visitors to Oregon Law may receive a student-led tour of the Knight Law Center and may sit-in on a first-year law class.
Oregon Law student tour guides will meet you in the admissions office and take you through the building to see the beautiful Jacqua Law Library (all three stories of it!), the Court Café (a University of Oregon bookstore), the newly remodeled law review offices (we have three student-run law journals), the Center for Career Planning and Professional Development, the Wayne Morse Commons, our classrooms big (100 seats) and small (24 seats), the official courtrooms (where the Oregon Supreme Court and Oregon Court of Appeals hear oral arguments each year), and everything in-between. This is a great opportunity for you to ask law students questions about their experience and we’re certain you’ll get a feel for if Oregon Law is a good fit for you.
Oregon Law faculty welcome prospective students to sit-in on one of their classes to get a feel for what it’s like to be a law student. Sure, most law schools teach in the Socratic Method, but witnessing the innovative teaching style of the Oregon Law faculty makes our visitors feel assured the learning process is engaging, thought-provoking, and yes, fun. Even if you can’t make it when classes are in session, we’ll do our best to connect you to our community.
You’ll also discover that the Knight Law Center is within a few minutes walk of the Student Rec Center, Graduate Village student housing, Moss Street Children’s Center, the EmX transit stop, and Historic Hayward Field, where you can run like an Olympian between classes.
Please contact the law school admissions office to schedule your visit. If you have questions about the admissions process, financial aid and scholarships, your file, or just want to get to know us better, you can also make an appointment to meet with the associate director of admissions.
