Willamette University College of Law continues its rise in rankings by US News and World Report. Over the past two years, the Salem, Oregon law school, known for having the highest job placement rate in Oregon and fifth highest on the West Coast, has jumped 30 places in the national rankings. The College of Law is now ranked 118.

“Our ability to help students master the law, gain practical experience and achieve their goals upon graduation sets us apart,” says law Dean Curtis Bridgeman.

Willamette University College of Law, located across the street from the Oregon State Capitol and Supreme Court, maintains a small enrollment of fewer than 400 students to ensure a personal, intellectually stimulating environment. It is the only law school in the country associated with one of the 40 “Colleges That Change Lives.”
