Oregon Law Center (OLC) provides legal help to people struggling to make ends meet on matters related to their homes, livelihoods, medical care and physical safety against domestic violence.

 Lawyers possess the keys to justice under the rule of law, the keys that open the courtroom door. Those keys…are held in trust for rich and poor alike. Nonetheless, a great and crying need for legal services for the poor remains.

Sandra Day O’Connor, Former Supreme Court Justice (while speaking at the University of Oregon)
