Child Abuse Reporting
Friday, Oct. 10, 9 a.m.-10 a.m.
Oregon State Bar Center
1 ethics credit

ORS 9.114, effective as of July 1, 2000, requires attorneys to complete one hour of training every three years on the duties of mandatory child abuse reporters. Many practitioners are not aware that they have a duty to report child abuse when they have reasonable cause to believe that a child with whom they have come into contact has suffered abuse or when they have reasonable cause to believe that any person with whom they have come in contact has abused a child.

Attend this program and satisfy your MCLE requirement under ORS 9.114. Learn what your duty to report is, when the duty applies, what abuse is and how to report it. Other topics include the meaning of 'reasonable cause' and 'comes in contact,' the reporting exception based on privileged communications and reporting someone's intention to commit an act of child abuse.
(No video replays available for Child Abuse Reporting.)

Regardless of your area of practice, age or socio-economic background, elder law issues are a reality that you will face in both your professional and personal life.

Remember the 'New Economy'? All the rules were different - the Economy was booming, dot-coms were proliferating and venture capital was seemingly plentiful. Computer and Internet law was influenced by these developments in many ways. Times have changed. The Economy is no longer flourishing, many dot-coms are a bust, and the Internet and high-tech sector seems to be those hardest hit. Computer and Internet law continues to reflect these changes. This seminar will address some of the changes that have resulted from the New…new Economy.
