CEJ helps connect volunteers, donors, legal aid lawyers, and low-income Oregonians in regions across the state. Our volunteers promote increased awareness about the civil legal needs of low-income Oregonians and encourage participation among their peers. Committees hold monthly meetings and assign outreach efforts. County bar associations also chip in, making financial contributions and using their newsletters as a way to update people about legal aid and honor donors. Committees reach out to volunteers to draft and sign fundraising letters. It is an impressive and coordinated effort.
By encouraging a friendly competition in giving among all the regions of the state, the Justice Cup and Equity Cup capture the spirit of Oregon lawyers supporting equal justice for all Oregonians. These trophies recognize regions for the percentage of attorneys that contribute to the CEJ.
In 2021, the Oregon Law Foundation and the CEJ partnered to create the Leadership Cup, which is awarded to the Oregon region with the largest percentage increase in IOLTAs at Leadership Banks & Credit Unions each year.
