U of Oregon to expand law school's satellite operation in Portland

The University of Oregon School of Law is expanding its satellite campus in Portland, moving two professors to the state’s biggest city and making plans to allow 25 to 30 students to complete their third year there, starting in 2015. Classes will be scheduled two years in advance to help students plan their program.

“I’m thrilled to be embarking on this first phase of expanding and refining Oregon Law’s Portland presence,” the law school’s dean, Michael Moffitt, told Around the O, a university publication. “The students will benefit greatly from exposure to the culture, climate and legal professionals located in this thriving metropolitan area.”

A news release and a fact sheet (PDF) on the law school’s website provide additional details.
