Not Online in Oregon: Attorney General’s Administrative Law Manual and other Legal Publications

By

For all the talk about “it’s all online,” we recently noticed that the Oregon Attorney General’s Administrative Law Manual and Uniform and Model Rules of Procedure under the APA is still available only in print.

(We keep a “not online” list and update it as people ask for things we can’t find or get online.)

It took years to get the Oregon Attorney General’s office to put their full Public Records and Meetings Manual online (and superseded editions are still not online); so the Model Rules may not appear online anytime soon, but it’s never too late to start a “please put it online” campaign.

It’s also important to ensure superseded editions remain online. Superseded editions of laws and legal treatises are as valuable as current editions, sometimes more.

More information about the Model Rules is available on the Attorney General’s website: http://www.doj.state.or.us/help/pages/explain_ag_model_rules.aspx

Research tip: sometimes you can find the superseded editions at the Internet Archive / Wayback Machine.
