The Almanac is published by the Appellate Practice Section and focuses on issues of Oregon appellate law and practice.  The 2020 theme has not yet been selected, but non-theme pieces are welcome as well.  The Almanac publishes works in the following areas:

  • Biographies/interviews/profiles of current and past figures in Oregon law
  • Court history, statistics, and trivia
  • Legal analysis of recent, significant, or overlooked Oregon appellate cases
  • Practice tips
  • Miscellany – humor, poetry, wit, etc.

Works should be between 500 and 2000 words and very lightly footnoted.  Motions for over-length articles will be granted only in extraordinary or compelling circumstances. Submissions are due June 1, so write early and write often! Authors receive a copy of the printed Almanac (if desired) and the plaudits of the Oregon appellate community.

If you have questions or would like to submit a piece, please email the editor, Nora Coon, at [email protected].
