Legal Employer Engagement Committee (LEEC)

The Legal Employer Engagement Committee (LEEC) was charged with researching, developing and publishing a preliminary “Employer’s Toolkit,” a collection of recommended best practices and suggested ideas or resources assembled by Oregon attorneys with Oregon law firms in mind. The LEEC will publish a final version of the Toolkit after gaining the input and assistance of those attending the Convocation.
