Oregon Women Lawyers provides many resources to members interested in judicial positions. We offer educational programs, individual applicant counseling and advice, application material reviews, personal advice on handling issues of concern, and practice interviews. OWLS does not endorse candidates for judicial positions, although several other Oregon specialty bar groups do so. OWLS is dedicated to assisting future and current judicial candidates in the application and appointment process as well as increasing decision-makers’ knowledge about the importance of diversity to the judiciary.
For questions or requests for assistance, please contact the OWLS executive director or Judicial Work Group co-chairs Kathryn Olney or Jennifer Nicholls.
