Office of Student Affairs

The Office of Student Affairs (OSA) provides comprehensive support for law students. This office is where students conduct most of their daily business -- turning in Legal Research and Writing assignments, registering for classes, scheduling rooms for student organization events, and rescheduling examinations -- just to name a few. The OSA also oversee registration for law courses, administering examinations, and Commencement in the spring.

Friendly Reminders

Locker Contents.  Each summer the locker combinations are re-keyed in preparation for the new academic year.  *Lockers will be cleared out during the week of July 25th, and contents will be held until August 12th.  Thereafter, any unclaimed locker contents will either be donated or discarded.  *NOTE: Though we'd like to keep everything for you, food/beverage containers with contents will be disposed for sanitation concerns.  We will not be emptying and cleaning anyone's food/beverage containers.

1L Orientation, August 17-19.  Welcome Class of 2019!  The 1L Orientation schedule of events may be accessed on the Law Admission website.  Classes start on Monday, August 22nd and first assignments are posted on the OSA semester materials website as we receive them from the professors.  Text books for courses are available on the Willamette Store website.  1L course assignments will be completed during the first week of August.


Class Attendance Tracking

The attendance tracking in JASON is recorded weekly as we receive attendance sheets from the faculty; however, it is ultimately the student's responsibility to track attendance, as reporting in JASON may not always be up to date.

If you find a discrepancy in the records (for example, if you were marked absent on a day that you were in class), email or contact the professor to ask them to notify the OSA to correct the attendance date in question.  We can only make a correction if the request is from the Professor.  If you know you were absent on a certain date, but JASON doesn't reflect it, please contact either the professor or the OSA to see if the attendance sheets have been turned in for the class in question.

OSA Notary Policy Change

Effective July 1, 2013, the OSA notary services are limited to WUCL students and graduates for purposes of application to state bar examinations.
