UTCR Committee Membership

First established in 1983 by then Chief Justice Edwin J. Peterson, the Uniform Trial Court Rules (UTCR) Committee reviews proposals for uniform rules for Oregon's circuit courts and reviews local courts' supplementary rules (SLR). The Chief Justice appoints the members to staggered three-year terms. Members may serve up to two terms. Members include six circuit judges, one deputy trial court administrator, one prosecutor, one criminal defense attorney, and five "general practice" attorneys.

The Committee meets several times a year to review the UTCR and SLR.
