The OSB Quality of Life Committee is charged with educating and motivating Oregon lawyers to make professional choices that enhance their quality of life and advance the legal profession as a whole.
The Committee’s specific goals include:
- Encouraging awareness and discussion of the diverse standard by which lawyers evaluate their lives;
- Educating lawyers and law firms about the benefits and methods of reducing tension between personal and professional life;
- Providing information and support for lawyers who choose non-traditional career paths;
- Fostering relationships with specialty bar associations, Oregon law schools, and other sections and committees of the State Bar in order to facilitate discussion of the above issues;
- Publishing and providing access to articles and resources pertaining to quality of life and the legal profession.
In addition to assembling the materials found here, the Committee is available to present continuing education programs offering advice to help lawyers and law firms examine and implement quality of life strategies. For example, last year the Committee presented a program at Lewis and Clark Law School called “How to Work a Room”. Click here to view the video.
