Legal Publications

Available Now: Oregon Constitutional Law, 2013 Proceed with confidence with our first edition of Oregon Constitutional Law. Oregon was a pioneer of the movement to interpret state constitutions independently of the U.S. Constitution. Attorneys practicing in Oregon need to be familiar with the provisions of the Oregon Constitution and the appellate courts' interpretations of those provisions. Not only does the Oregon Constitution address many of the rights protected by the federal Constitution, but it also defines many of the powers that the federal Constitution reserved for the states. This book should be on the shelf of every Oregon practitioner. Contact our OSB Service Desk at (503) 431-6413 or toll-free in Oregon (800) 452-8260, ext 413 to place your order.
