UO Law School

The University of Oregon School of Law, founded in 1884, has risen in the ranks to become a nationally recognized institution.

When the greater University launched the We, If campaign in Fall 2014, the School of Law needed an updated website that matched the aesthetic and messaging of the new brand. It presented a great opportunity to enhance the website’s functionality for faculty, current and prospective students, and even the system support team.

We designed and built an extensive dynamic site that fits the needs of the Law School while conforming to the University's parameters. The new site's internal organization and structure has seen the bounce rate drop to below 7% while seamlessly handling nearly half a million visitors per year.

The site was built from scratch using ExpressionEngine’s general-purpose content management system. This flexible platform supports custom page and field types with many plugins available to further customize a site’s functionality. ExpressionEngine is best suited for websites with high traffic, lots of content, and custom needs. As we do for all EE sites, we integrated Bootstrap into the build to enable a dynamic, responsive design on all devices.
