Oregon State Bar Task Forces
The OSB has four active task forces examining ideas that could modernize elements of the bar and its regulatory role. They include creation of a new license structure to allow paralegals to provide select services in family law and landlord/tenant law; alternative methods of admission beyond the bar exam; alternatives to traditional legal education; and how best to set the standards to establish minimum competency.
