When I became a Member of the Oregon State Bar Board of Govenors I was immediately struck by how complicated is the structure of the Oregon State Bar. For example there are Committees, Sections, Councils, Associations, Benches, Task Forces, Campaigns, Commissions, Projects, Services, Programs, Centers and so on. Then there are what I call external organizations like the ACLU, quasi-external organizations like the Campaign for Equal Justice and organizations of uncertain affiliations like the Oregon Law Commission. There are other organizations well fitted in certain locations and not in others like the Inns of Court. It is bewildering. As has been said there is control in confusion. (Actually the saying was "There is profit in confusion." ) Therefore, as an enticement to this site, I will attempt to make sense out of these straight and dotted lines to the wonderful world of the Oregon State Bar.
