This article examines Oregon's UTPA with an eye toward legislative and judicial reforms that will strengthen its private cause of action and thereby facilitate private enforcement. First, the scope of the UTPA is examined. Next, private remedies authorized by the UTPA are critiqued. Finally, the role of the DOJ is reformulated in response to declining public resources and increased reliance on private enforcement.
