The online 2015 ORS will appear shortly, at least we hope before the official start of the 2016 Legislative Session.

The official PRINT ORS is available at law and public libraries around Oregon. (But call first to make sure your library has it in print. Not all libraries get the official print version.)

Note that any legislation passed in the 2016 and 2017 Oregon legislative sessions WILL NOT appear in codified format until the 2017 Oregon Revised Statutes are published in late 2017 or early 2018.

Short answer: No. (But your questions do give us ideas for future blog posts!)

Longer answer: The two professional law librarians currently posting to this blog serve a county of 500,000+ residents (and the rest of Oregon – and other states and countries on occasion) and run a public law library so we just don’t have the time to answer everyone’s questions. (But you can visit your own county’s Law Library and research your question!)

Longest, and perhaps more useful, answer for those with legal reference or research questions: Please read the legal research tips we provided in our August 2010 blog post:

We’re pleased, and very excited, to announce that our new, collaborative, Oregon county law libraries Oregon Legal Research website went live last week.

And what a journey it has been, with the generous and nurturing (and pro bono!) support from the best friend public law librarians ever had, Justia. It’s been a long and interesting journey, which we’ll write up one day soon – and post to the website, but not until the journey is complete.

In addition to continuing work on the website, note that the new WordPress Oregon Legal Research Blog won’t go “live” until the current Blogger Oregon Legal Research blog is fully migrated to WordPress. We still have lots of librarian work to do on it (taxonomies, oh my), but again, we bow down willingly and gratefully to Justia‘s patient and skilled teaching and technical staff. They create miracles that make us look good, really, really good.
