OSB Events

Celebrating Oregon Lawyers

Each year, based on nominations from members and the public, the Oregon State Bar honors a select group of lawyers and judges who have made outstanding contributions to the community and the profession. The Professionalism Commission recognizes an attorney who exemplifies honesty and integrity. Finally, the annual Pro Bono Challenge recognizes the lawyers and law firms who reported the most time providing direct pro bono services.

Join us on Thursday, October 27, from 5-7 pm at the Sentinal Hotel in Portland and
help us celebrate this year’s recipients, along with our 40- and 50-year members.

The Oregon State Bar thanks the many sponsors of this event for their generous support. The reception would not be possible without them. You can see a list of sponsors here.
