I live in Portland, and Oregon in general is very liberal (at least the Willamette Valley--as you go further east, citizens tend to be more conservative). L&C itself was voted #3 on Princeton Review's "most liberal" law school list, which should tell you quite a bit... especially considering that Berkeley, famous for its politics, was voted #8. However, L&C also has a pretty substantial group of conservative students--the Federalist Society is among the most active groups on campus. I would recommend visiting if you're unsure, but if liberals completely turn you off, you will likely despise both the school and Portland as a whole. If you do have any questions about Portland, feel free to PM me--I grew up in Oregon and have lived in Portland specifically for about five years.
