Oregon Law Institute of Lewis & Clark Law School

At Oregon Law Institute of Lewis & Clark Law School we feel our product is information to help each lawyer succeed. CLE programing is one of the ways we deliver that information. There are many other sources of information that are important for an attorney's long-term success. We are now connecting our CLE offerings to Casemaker. As you will see when you view the program, this new player allows for a real time link between the course materials and all referenced cases, codes, and statutes maintained in the Oregon Casemaker Library. The "Notes" area also allows you to record these references along with your thoughts at the time and email that capture to yourself for application to the work on your desk. We call this feature "CLE to Work" and think it will go a long way in adding value to your CLE experience. In addition, we have listed other Casemaker opportunities for your consideration that connected to the Casemaker library, making the job of serving your clients easier, more accurate, and complete.
