Welcome to the website of the Government Law Section of the Oregon State Bar (GLS).

The GLS welcomes bar members whose practice involves representing the diverse forms of government in Oregon, including the state, counties, cities, special districts, regional and federal governments.  Members of the bar who are engaged in providing legal representation to any of these levels of government in any capacity, whether as public employees or in private practice, are encouraged to contribute to the Section and its activities.

The Section meets monthly by telephone.  In addition, the GLS sponsors two CLEs each year specifically tailored to the cutting edge issues confronting lawyers maintaining government law practices.  The GLS also provides e-mail alerts on topics of interest to government lawyers, remains active in providing information regarding legislative and judicial decisions of relevance to Section members, and maintains links for resources of interest to lawyers whose practice involves government.

We invite you to join us as we work together to provide a valuable and meaningful resource for the significant number of attorneys engaged in providing legal representation to government entities in Oregon.
