Presented by Sean Carter

Court decisions and legislation eliminated laws and practices that historically enforced and encouraged discrimination, but "getting along" with each other is a different matter. As an attorney of color and the country’s foremost (and perhaps only) humorist-at-law, Sean Carter delves into biases in the legal profession. Using his legal experiences and touches of humor, Carter takes a frank look at bias and the importance eliminating bias in the legal profession.

Animal Law
Thursday, Sept. 11, 9 a.m.-noon
3 general CLE credits
Oregon State Bar Center, Tigard

Using short clips from a variety of movies over the decades, an animal law expert will guide you through the myriad problems that tend to arise in litigation involving animals. The problems are both procedural (at the pleading, discovery, evidence, and trial stages) and substantive (tort, contractual, and equitable theories of recovery and defense). This cinematic perspective will increase your understanding and appreciation of the aesthetics, emotions and realities involved with
handling animal legal issues.

Live webcast available.
