NEW! Oregon Civil Pleading and Litigation, 2020 Edition

Lead the way to justice for your clients with this new resource, a must-have for any Oregon lawyer who handles civil cases. Whether you litigate often or only try one case per year, the tools you need are in Oregon Civil Pleading and Litigation.

You spoke. We listened. In response to member feedback, OSB Legal Publications has combined and updated all of the material previously published in Oregon Civil Pleading and Practice and Oregon Civil Litigation Manual into a three-volume resource: Oregon Civil Pleading and Litigation. We also added topics not previously included, such as appellate considerations for trial counsel and litigation technology.

Written and peer-reviewed by expert litigators, this book will guide you from the initial client interview and evaluation of a case to posttrial matters and preparing for the appeals process. Includes citations to and discussion of over 2,500 cases and 2,400 statutes and rules, as well as 150 forms.
