Oregon Judicial Department Mission Statement:
As a separate and independent branch of government, our mission is to provide fair and accessible justice services that protect the rights of individuals, preserve community welfare, and inspire public confidence.
Reports: The Oregon Judicial Department issues annual reports on the status and work of the state courts; reports generated from the work of committees, commissions, task forces, or workgroups that provide research, information, and recommendations; annual case statistics of the circuit courts; judicial and staff workload measurements; fiscal impact statements for pending legislation; the Chief Justice’s Recommended Budget; reports on the state court system for the legislature; and a two-year strategic plan (the Strategic Campaign). These reports and others are compiled and managed by the Office of the State Court Administrator. The appellate courts and Oregon Tax Court manage their own statistics and reports.
