Revamped meeting set for Sept. 18-20
Although the location hasn’t changed, the annual meeting has undergone some big changes. For starters, the schedule has been condensed to bring high quality education in a shorter period of time — giving participants more time to wrap up at the office, grab the family and have some fun.
Events will take place at the Seaside
Civic & Convention Center and Best Western OceanView
Resort. Look for updates in future issues of the Bar
News and on the bar’s website at www.osbar.org.

Myers to receive UO law school award
The public service award was given last year for the first time to Frohnmayer who, like Myers, has served as Oregon attorney general and as a state legislator. The award subsequently was named in honor of Frohnmayer and he will present it to Hardy Myers at the April banquet.
Myers was selected by the law school alumni association from dozens of nominations.
Hardy Myers, who is in his second term as attorney general, graduated from the UO law school in 1964. He represented eastside Portland during five legislative terms and was speaker of the House from 1979 to 1983. Myers served on the Portland planning commission and the predecessor of Metro and had a distinguished career with Portland’s Stoel Rives law firm. He has been a successful law and policy reformer throughout his career.
The reception, dinner and program are
open to the entire legal community. For information
