We are very excited to welcome Oregon Supreme Court Chief Justice Martha L. Walters as the keynote speaker for this event.
Justice Walters joined the Oregon Supreme Court as an Associate Justice in October 2006. She was elected by her colleagues as Oregon's 44th Chief Justice and began service in July 2018. Justice Walters has the honor of serving as Oregon's first female chief justice. Before joining the court, Chief Justice Walters practiced law for nearly 30 years, emphasizing employment law and civil litigation as well as general civil practice.
In 2007 after four years in other leadership positions, Chief Justice Walters was elected to a two-year term as the first woman president of the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws.
Chief Justice Walters is a regular speaker, instructor, and author on the law and law improvement, including teaching law school classes, speaking at continuing legal education programs, and teaching for the Sakhalin/Oregon Rule of Law partnership.
