BOG Proposes MCLE Rule Change Affecting New Lawyer Mentoring Program
The Board of Governors has approved a change to the MCLE rules that would add a mechanism to remove members from serving as OSB mentors if they are subject to ethics charges, or face a discipline-related administrative suspension. The OSB seeks member and public comment through December 31. Details and link for feedback available here.
Proposed Amendment to MCLE Rules 3.3 and 3.6 and Regulation 3.400
The Oregon Supreme Court ordered MCLE Rule amendments effective January 1, 2022, which will place new OSB members admitted by reciprocity directly into a three year reporting cycle, instead of the typical short cycle new lawyers are given, as long as the new member has practiced in another jurisdiction for three consecutive years immediately prior to admission in Oregon.
