Oregon was a pioneer of the movement to interpret state constitutions independently of the U.S. Constitution. Not only does the Oregon Constitution address many of the rights protected by the federal Constitution, but it also defines many of the powers that the federal Constitution reserved for the states. Oregon attorneys must be familiar with the Oregon Constitution and the appellate courts’ interpretations of it. This second edition of Oregon Constitutional Law is designed for exactly that purpose. It covers many of the rights protected by Article I, Oregon’s Bill of Rights, as well as the initiative and referendum processes, financing of state government, taxation, and home rule. More importantly, it includes practical advice about how to litigate state constitutional issues. This book is an essential resource for every Oregon practitioner.
