About Us

Access to justice is a right guaranteed under the Oregon Constitution. Access to justice requires more than simple access to legal information or to the courts. In our legal tradition, access to justice must include access to sources of law. "Access to justice" is meaningless without equal access to current and reliable legal information and expert legal research assistance.

Oregon public law librarians, and this website, serve many people: pro se (self-represented) litigants, attorneys, judges, law firm and self-employed law librarians, investigators, elected officials, state, local and federal government employees, legal researchers and writers, teachers, reporters, students from K-12, home-schooled students, college and university students, law students, and paralegal students.
