Oregon State Bar Military Assistance Panel

The Oregon bar provides opportunities for attorneys to receive specialized training and offer pro bono services to active duty service members deployed overseas, through its innovative Oregon State Bar Military Assistance Panel.

Initiated in 2003, by Oregon Attorney General Hardy Myers, Oregon Supreme Court Chief Justice Wallace P. Carson, Department of Veterans’ Affairs and the OSB, the program now has over 120 volunteer attorneys. A two-hour online CLE is available to volunteers. PLF coverage for those not otherwise covered is under a special umbrella policy for OSB Certified Pro Bono Programs.
