No-cost legal services.
This program is one of our premier benefits for being a member of COLT. Our pro bono program matches conservation legal needs with licenced volunteer attorneys. The program provides no-cost legal services to our coalition members to help create and enforce conservation easements and other property or policy interests that achieve the goals of conserving natural, scenic, and open space values, as well as agriculture, forest and recreation resources throughout Oregon. Please note that volunteer attorneys may need to limit the scope or duration of the pro bono legal advice they provide.

Items to note:
Note that COLT will provide malpractice insurance for pro bono attorneys and our program provides legal training regarding conservation easements and other land transaction for lawyers and land trusts in various Oregon locations. In addition, we offer guidance documents and legal resources available in our online library. The pro bono program also organizes Oregon Conservation Law Forums each year, offering continuing legal education credits for attorneys.
