State Law Library

The State of Oregon Law Library traces its history to the Territorial Act of 1848, which established the Oregon Territorial Government and provided for a library "to be kept at the seat of government for the use of the governor, legislative assembly, judges of the Supreme Court, secretary, marshal, and attorneys of said territory, and such other persons...as shall be prescribed by law."

The Oregon Judges Criminal Benchbook, 2005 edition has been removed because the information is extremely outdated (last update was in 2006). Due to the severe budget cuts that the Oregon Judicial Department has faced over the last several years there have not been resources available to conduct the extensive research necessary to keep this updated with current case law and legislative changes.
