Willamette University’s College of Law is one of the most progressive legal schools in the country. The institution’s reputation is built on its historically progressive approach to legal education. It is not uncommon for Willamette Law students to watch real cases and ask questions based on the real-world applications of what they’ve learned. In addition, the college’s 4+3 Direct Admission Program allows students to attend Willamette on a direct basis.
Willamette Law’s Bruce Spaulding Trial Competition recently featured leading legal scholars and third-year law students. The class of 2020 also used bar study time to address the issue of racial justice in Oregon. In addition, the class wrote for Incarcerated Persons Workforce Re-Entry, and volunteered at a local soup kitchen. In fact, some of the class members achieved high placements in Moot Court competitions.
As a result of this effort, Willamette University has become one of the most competitive law schools in the United States. During the past six years, Willamette has posted the highest employment numbers in the state of Oregon. It has also been ranked as one of the best law schools in the nation, with a net promoter score of 87.
Willamette Law has recently announced that ten of its professors are being promoted to tenure. This is a significant development for the college, which will expand its teaching staff. It will also increase access to top career opportunities for Willamette’s students.
In addition to promoting these professors, Willamette has announced that they have hired six new faculty members. Each of these new faculty members will bring a different perspective to the college. Some are experts in health care law, while others specialize in evidence and data analytics. Another new faculty member, Professor Jacob Elberg, joins the college with experience in Health Care Fraud. He is the author of a number of articles, and his work has been cited by the American Bar Association.
In addition to these new hires, Willamette will soon resume its in-person education schedule. The university has announced that it will accept applications for the upcoming semester, and applications are due by October 1. The college anticipates a full calendar of on-campus activity.
