Meet Laura A. MacMillan
I am a sixth generation Oregonian and grew up just outside of Portland. I attended Oregon State University, where I received bachelors degrees in English and education, graduating summa cum laude. While earning my license to teach high school English, I worked closely with Corvallis youth and developed an interest in the legal issues encountered by juveniles and their families.
After finishing at Oregon State, I attended the University of Oregon School of Law. While in law school, I was the editor-in-chief of the Oregon Review of International Law, as well as chair of the pro bono committee’s executive board. Additionally, I worked as a certified law clerk for the Washington County District Attorney’s Office in the juvenile unit. During my time there, I prosecuted dependency and delinquency cases, gaining extensive trial and negotiation experience. I worked closely with the Department of Human Services Child Welfare, which allowed me to develop an understanding for many of the challenges families are facing and the importance of constructive dispute resolution.
In my spare time, I enjoy running, baking, and spending time with family and friends. I also love rooting on my Oregon State Beavers and Portland Timbers!
