For All Oregonians

The mission of the State of Oregon Law Library (SOLL) is to provide the comprehensive legal resources that the executive, legislative and judicial branches of state government require to serve the public effectively and to afford all Oregonians access to legal information. If you are lucky enough to live within the borders of this great state, you have access to the following, public, legal research databases, provided by the SOLL.

Use Fastcase to find case law, statutes, session laws, rules, or attorney general opinions. If you need general self-help guides with titles like Building a Parenting Agreement that works, U.S. Immigration Made Easy, and Every Landlord's Legal Guide, then check out our subscription to NOLO.

In addition, SOLL provides online access to briefs and opinions of the Oregon Supreme and Appellate Courts, legal research guides, and in-person and virtual legal reference services
