The Sustainable Future Section supports sustainability within the Oregon legal profession and the practice of law through (1) educational programs, (2) examination of the integration of law and sustainability, and (3) dialogue about the needs and interests of future generations.
The Winter 2013 edition of The Long View, the Section’s newsletter, is now available. Read articles on the effects of climate change in the Northwest and Multnomah County’s plans to address those effects. Click here!
