Oz Factor is the second album by the San Diego-based punk rock band Unwritten Law, released in 1996 by Epic Records. It established the band's presence in the prolific southern California punk rock scene of the mid-1990s. The songs "Superman" and "Denied" became minor hits on local rock radio stations. It was the band's last album with bassist John Bell, who left the band following the supporting tours.

The album was produced by Greg Graffin of Bad Religion. Brian Baker, also of Bad Religion, appeared on the album as well. The songs "Suzanne" and "Shallow" are re-recordings of songs from the band's debut album Blue Room.
