“Welcome to the Oregon Council on Court Procedures. The Council was created by the Oregon Legislature in 1977 to work on court rules dealing with pleading, practice, and procedure. The Council is the Oregon public body that is most directly involved in creating, reviewing, and amending the Oregon Rules of Civil Procedure, which govern procedure and practice in all Oregon circuit courts (except for the small claims department).
Members of the Council are drawn from appellate and circuit court judges, practicing attorneys who represent both those who bring civil cases and those who defend them, and a public member. All Council members serve without pay. The work of the Council is supported by a professional staff, the Oregon State Bar, and by the Lewis & Clark Law School. All meetings of the Council are open to the public. …”
