Welcome to the Oregon Legal Research gateway powered by Oregon public law librarians and their Access to Justice partners.

Our goal is to promote justice by providing all Oregonians with access to legal information and legal research assistance.

Access to justice under the Oregon Constitution requires more than simple access to legal information or the courts.
