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.
If you need to find case law, statutes, session laws (new and old), rules or attorney general opinions, check out our subscription to Fastcase. If you are looking for self-help guides with titles like Buying Your First Home, Building a Parenting Agreement, U.S. Immigration Made Easy, Every Tenant's Legal Guide, and Credit Repair, ...then check out our subscription to NOLO. JUST A NOTE, NOLO guides are very general in nature and not specific to Oregon law. We strongly urge you to contact an Oregon law librarian or an attorney for assistance.
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.
