Oregon Law Center supports the decision of the Oregon Supreme Court to grant diploma privileges to 2020 law school graduates and will not discriminate in hiring against lawyers admitted to the Bar through diploma privileges.

Legal Aid Services of Oregon and Oregon Law Center stand in solidarity with the Black community. We denounce the brutal killing of George Floyd and all Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color (BIPOC) at the hands of the police and others who oppress them, whether in Minnesota, Oregon or anywhere in our nation.

As legal aid organizations, our mission is to achieve justice for the low-income communities of Oregon by providing a full range of the highest quality civil legal services.  We emphasize the right of our clients to decide the solutions that we pursue for the issues they face, and our clients have long told us that racial discrimination is a critical barrier preventing them from escaping poverty.  We are responsible to our clients to work to dismantle systemic racism and white supremacy as we fight for economic justice on their behalf.

Legal aid lawyers and staff across the state will continue to work together to bring equity, justice, and integrity into our communities and our legal system.

Oregon Law Center is open and available to assist you
