About Us

Robb started OregonLaws.org while a student at Lewis & Clark Law School. He was enrolled in two very statutes-oriented classes, Criminal Law and Wills & Trusts. These frequently made use of the Oregon Revised Statutes. He wanted online access that was easy to read, browse, and search, to avoid schlepping the statutes to class. Well, he couldn’t find it, so he started building it himself.


Now located in Colorado, we’ve organized as Public Technology LLC to bring the Oregon recipe to the rest of the United States and abroad.
