Oregon State Bar

The mission of the Oregon State Bar is to increase access to justice by improving the quality of legal services and promoting respect for the law. The OSB is a regulatory agency providing protection to the public that partners with the judicial system. This professional organization creates leaders helping lawyers serve a diverse community.

Established in 1935, the Oregon State Bar (OSB) was created by the Oregon Legislative Assembly to license and discipline lawyers, regulate the practice of law and provide a variety of services to bar members and the public. As an instrumentality of the Oregon Judicial Department, the OSB is funded by membership and program fees. Because it is not a state agency, it does not receive any financial support or taxpayer dollars from the state’s general fund.

Oregon State Bar Lawyer Referral Service

The Oregon State Bar has established several programs to help the public find an attorney including a Lawyer Referral Service, Modest Means Program, Military Assistance Panel, and Problem Solvers. The Oregon State Bar's Lawyer Referral Service ("LRS") helps individuals and businesses find a qualified attorney. The attorneys that participate on the LRS panels have been screened to make sure they do not have an current disciplinary proceeding pending, carry malpractice insurance, and agree to follow certain standards for customer service.
