Buildings and Grounds/Facilities Office

Priority for the use of law school facilities, especially classrooms, will be given to the conduct of classes and other official law school functions. Organizations or individuals wishing to use any law school facilities must have permission from the law school and must reserve such facilities with the Law School Business Services Office. Reservations will be on a first-come first-served basis and subject to the availability of space and appropriateness of the intended use. These facilities are available only for purposes related to the law school or the legal profession. Reservations must be made at least one week in advance and confirmed at least one day in advance.

The law school, however, reserves the right to cancel such reservations if a priority use of the space becomes necessary or it is subsequently discovered that the intended use is inappropriate.

Smoking Policy

The College takes seriously its obligation to provide a safe, healthy environment for faculty, staff, students and guests. The College is guided by the Oregon Indoor Clean Air Act in efforts to provide an appropriate work and learning environment.

Please visit the link below for complete details of our new smoking policy effective August, 23, 2010.

Institutional Smoking Policy

Public Telephones

A public (pay) telephone is located outside the Gantenbein Building near the student lockers and mailboxes. Free student telephones for outgoing local calls only are located in the Gantenbein Building and the Library.


Since all classrooms are air conditioned and heated, keep doors, including the rear door, closed at all times. If it becomes uncomfortable, please advise Facilities in Business Services.

Building Security

Law school buildings will be kept open as long as and when necessary for law school functions. Faculty office areas will be secured between 10:00 p.m. and 7:30 a.m. weekdays. The areas are closed at all times on the weekends. Common areas of the Legal Research Center will close the same time as the Library. All persons not authorized to occupy facilities during off hours will leave such facilities immediately at the time(s) they are to be secured or when requested to do so by a faculty or staff member or security officer.

Any authorized person entering a law school building(s) during off-hours is responsible for completely securing the building(s) when entering and upon departure. Always keep an eye on your belongings.


Too many law school dollars must be spent to repair or replace buildings, furniture or equipment damaged by vandalism. Such acts by law students are a violation of the Honor Code and, if observed by another student, the act should be reported to the Honor Committee. If anyone other than a law student is observed committing an act of vandalism, report such act to an appropriate administrative official, faculty member or campus security.

Law School Furniture

Any student, faculty, or staff member, who wishes to use any item of law school furniture on or off campus in other than its designated place, must first obtain permission from the Business Services Office, and must return, or ensure the return of such furniture, to its appropriate place within the time constraints given them by Business Services. If the item is damaged, the law school must be reimbursed for the replacement value of the item.

Children on Campus

Minor children on campus must be in the company of their parents, or a designated adult, at all times. Parents are strictly responsible for the conduct and safety of their children while on the law school campus.


It is a violation of college policy to leave a pet unattended in a vehicle. If a pet is brought on campus, it must be kept under control and attended at all times. Any pet not under control must be removed immediately by the owner, or it will be subject to impoundment.

Any pet left unattended is subject to impoundment. Excessive barking by a dog will classify that animal as not under control. Any pet reported by multiple students, faculty or staff as a nuisance may be considered out of control. Pets on campus must be on a leash at all times. Pets are not allowed in classrooms, eating areas, lounges, study areas, or in any other buildings (with the exception of private offices).

All pet owners must follow city and county animal licensing requirements; any unlicensed pets must be removed from the campus. Any owners violating these policies are subject to a fine of $10 a day.

Class Recording Policy

By Students

Students may make audio recordings of class sessions only with the prior permission of the professor. Such recordings are for personal use only and may not be uploaded to the internet or otherwise shared, transmitted, or published without the prior consent of the professor. The professor must notify the class when audio recordings are being made. Violation of these guidelines can result in Honor Code proceedings.

 By the Law School

The Law School automatically makes an audio/video recording of all classes (except classes offered in rooms without recording capability and unless the Professor opts out of having the class recorded). If the class is recorded, the Professor decides whether those recordings will be automatically available to all students registered for the class, or whether students must request recordings of specific classes. Students who are not registered for a class do not have access to the recordings. Recordings are intended for a student’s personal use only, and it is an Honor Code violation to forward the link to any other person without the professor’s prior permission.

Lost and Found

Items found at the Law School can be turned in at the switchboard 503-768-6600, (front desk in the Legal Research Building or the front desk of Boley Library.

Students may use the Lewis & Clark Student Health Service and Counseling Service regardless of whether they are enrolled in the Student Health Insurance Plan.

Please visit the Student Health Insurance website to see current details about the Student Health Insurance plan and requirements:

Students will be automatically enrolled in and charged for the school-sponsored insurance policy each year.

Students are afforded one opportunity at the start of each academic year to waive the school’s coverage. A new waiver must be submitted each year.  To find out if your proposed insurance is meets the College’s standard for health insurace, go to: To learn about waiving the school sponsored insurance plan, go to:
