Introduction

The Oregon Supreme Court is Oregon's court of last resort.  The court is composed of seven justices elected to serve six-year terms by nonpartisan, statewide ballot.  The court is primarily a court of discretionary review, although a significant percentage of its caseload involves cases on mandatory direct review or direct appeal from lower tribunals.  In addition to the justices, the court employs a number of judicial assistants, staff attorneys, law clerks, an Appellate Legal Counsel, and a management assistant.  The court also has a program for law students to assist in its work on a volunteer basis.

The Oregon Court of Appeals is Oregon's intermediate appellate court.  The court is currently composed of 13 judges elected to serve six-year terms by nonpartisan, statewide ballot.  The court has broad jurisdiction over appeals from the circuit courts in criminal and civil cases and judicial review proceedings from administrative tribunals.  In addition to the judges, the court employs a number of judicial assistants, staff attorneys, and law clerks, as well as an executive manager and technical support staff.  The court also has a program for law students to assist in its work on a volunteer basis.
 
The Office of the Appellate Commissioner is a part of the Oregon Court of Appeals. It is responsible for deciding in the first instance most substantive motions filed in the Court of Appeals, such as motions to dismiss for want of jurisdiction, motions to dismiss as moot, motions to determine appealability, and motions for stays.  In addition to the Appellate Commissioner, the Office employs a paralegal and a law clerk.
