Nonprofit News: Oregon State Bar Creates a Nonprofit Organizations Law Section (NOLS)


The Oregon State Bar (OSB) has approved a Nonprofit Organizations Law Section (NOLS) for OSB members, effective January 2012.

The Nonprofit Organizations Law Section (NOLS) will support Oregon attorneys who serve on boards and as advisors to nongovernmental, not-for-profit entities recognized under Oregon and federal laws.

Oregon lawyers and law librarians may subscribe to the section’s listserve at:

Many thanks to Oregon attorney, John Gear, who spearheaded the effort to create the NOLS and to the members and officers now serving the new section.  Law librarians get lots of questions from attorneys who practice nonprofit law and now they can easily exchange valuable information among themselves, too.
