PORTLAND - The Oregon State Bar is seeking public members who are not lawyers for its board of governors, and several other committees and boards.
"The input of public members at every level of state bar work is invaluable," said OSB President Charlie Williamson. "By ensuring that the public is well-represented, these individuals contribute to the health of Oregon's legal system."
Opportunities include one Board of Governors position, as well as appointments to groups that consider attorney discipline, conduct discipline investigations and sit on trial panels. Positions are open on the Judicial Administration Committee, Unlawful Practice of Law Committee, State Lawyers Assistance program, Minimum Continuing Legal Education Committee, and the Client Security Fund Committee. Application forms, due July 18, and details about open positions are available at www.osbar.org or at (503) 620-0222, ext. 308, or (800) 452-8260, ext. 308.
