Oregon State Bar Bulletin FEBRUARY/MARCH 2016
Feedback Sought on Washington County Circuit Court
The Washington County Circuit Court is continuing its re-engineering process. Aided by an assessment by the National Center for State Courts, the assessment is a top-to-bottom project that ranges from court management and leadership issues to case management and what the court can do differently to meet the changing needs of the public.
In this ongoing re-engineering process, the Washington County Civil Bench/Bar Committee is working to identify changes that could be made to improve the civil litigation process and case management. The committee would appreciate hearing any feedback or suggestions that the bar has on these issues.
To contact the committee, please email WCCBCC5@gmail.com.
