Negotiation Ethics: Winning Without Selling Your Soul with Marty Latz
Friday, Dec. 7
1:30 -4:30 p.m.
3 ethics credits
Oregon Convention Center, Portland

In real estate, it’s location, location, location. In negotiation, it’s reputation, reputation, reputation. A trustworthy reputation — once lost — can be difficult if not impossible to regain. In this seminar, Martin E. Latz plays devil’s advocate in presenting a series of ethically challenging negotiation scenarios to a blue ribbon panel of Oregon practitioners.

High-Tech Ethics: Law Firm Risk Management on the Digital Frontier
Thursday, Dec. 27
9-11 a.m.
2 ethics credits
Oregon State Bar Center, Lake Oswego

For many lawyers, a typical day includes: sending and receiving e-mails from office computers, wireless laptops and handheld devices; carrying confidential documents on "memory keys" or laptops; exchanging documents in electronic form with opposing parties and using law firm websites for both advertising and in-bound communications with prospective clients. These electronic tools allow us to be more efficient and more responsive to our clients. They also present new and evolving concerns for risk management. This seminar looks at three areas of electronic risk management: electronic communications; electronic document storage and exchange; and using websites for both advertising and inbound communications from potential clients.

CLE Publications

Juvenile Law (available now). Effective representation of your clients — either juveniles or parents — is critical. Written by lawyers, judges, juvenile court staff and child psychologists, Juvenile Law deals with issues relevant to both delinquency and dependency cases and offers a thorough examination of the Juvenile Code as well as the code’s case law interpretations.


Oregon Uniform Civil Jury Instructions (coming soon). You don’t need to draft jury instructions — we’ve already done the work for you. Oregon Uniform Civil Jury Instructions is a valuable desk and courtroom reference. The 2007 supplement includes five new and one revised agency instructions, two new employer liability law instructions, a revised punitive damages instruction and a revised special verdict form that separates the questions of negligence and causation.

For more information, call the OSB Service Desk at (503) 684-7413 or, toll-free in Oregon, (800) 452-8260, ext. 413.
