One of the greatest benefits of OWLS membership is the opportunity to join the OWLS e-mail listserve, which connects participants to over 900 OWLS members throughout the state. Credited with helping to create a “culture of support” in the Oregon legal community, the listserve is an excellent forum for referrals, legal questions, and job announcements.
You can set the list serve to allow individual messages or a once a day digest. Click here for instructions to change your list serve settings.
Instructions for posting to the list serve and the list serve etiquette are available by clicking here.
